Gregory F. Lawler
Gregory Francis Lawler (born July 14, 1955 in Alexandria , Virginia ) is an American mathematician who deals with probability theory.
Lawler studied at the University of Virginia (bachelor's degree 1976) and at Princeton University , where he received his doctorate in 1979 under Edward Nelson (A self avoiding random walk). Then he was from 1979 at Duke University , most recently as a professor, and from 2001 at Cornell University . From 2006 he is a professor at the University of Chicago . Among other things, he was visiting scholar and visiting professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University , the University of British Columbia , the University of Cambridge and several French universities.
Lawler deals with the fine structure of random movements (Random Walk, Brownian movement ), especially in the two-dimensional case and in processes with strong interactions, such as occur in statistical physics. He is known for his work on the Schramm-Löwner evolution (after Oded Schramm ). For this work he received the George Pólya Prize in 2006 with Wendelin Werner and Oded Schramm . He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (1991), the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2005), and the National Academy of Sciences (2013). In 1986 he was a Sloan Research Fellow . In 2002 he was invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Beijing ( Conformal Invariance, Universality and the Dimension of the Brownian Frontier ). He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society . In 2018 he was plenary speaker at the ICM in Rio ( Conformally invariant loop measures ). For 2019 he received the Wolf Prize for Mathematics.
He was the founding editor of the Electronic Journal of Probability, was the editor of the Annals of Probability, and is the editor of the Journal of the American Mathematical Society.
