Mark Adler (mathematician)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mark Alan Adler (born December 16, 1950 ) is an American mathematician .

Adler studied mathematics at the Cooper Union School of Engineering and Science (bachelor's degree 1972) and received his doctorate in 1976 from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University under Jürgen Moser . As a post-doctoral student he was at the University of Wisconsin-Madison , 1978 Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota , 1979 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn and from 1980 Assistant Professor at Brandeis University . In 1982 he became associate professor there and in 1989 professor. From 1991 to 1993 he was head of the mathematics faculty there.

Adler deals with integrable dynamic systems and their connection with finite dimensional and infinite dimensional Lie algebras , matrix integrals and random matrices (and random processes), where he worked closely with Pierre van Moerbeke (also a professor at Brandeis University) for many years .

From 1981 to 1983 he was a Sloan Research Fellow .
