Prize Recipient


Nathan Seiberg
Institute for Advanced Study


"For their decisive advances in elucidating the dynamics of strongly coupled supersymmetric field and string theories. The deep physical and mathematical consequences of the electric-magnetic duality they exploited have broadened the scope of Mathematical Physics."


Dr. Seiberg completed his undergraduate education in 1977 at Tel-Aviv University and received his PhD from The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel in 1982. He spent several years as a member at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, and was a Professor of Physics at The Weizmann Institute for Science and at Rutgers University. Currently he is a Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ.

Dr. Seiberg's interests are in string theory, field theory and particle physics phenomenology. During the last year, he has been working with various collaborators on exact solutions of supersymmetric field theories and string theories in various dimensions.
