Leonard Eisenbud Prize Selection Committee
- Committee is standing
- Number of members is three
- Term is three years.
The Leonard Eisenbud Prize for Mathematics and Physics will honor a work or group of works that brings the two fields closer together. Thus, for example, the prize might be given for a contribution to mathematics inspired by modern developments in physics or for the development of a physical theory exploiting modern mathematics in a novel way.
The committee discusses candidates, identifies the awardee, and reports its selection to the Secretary for approval by the Executive Committee of the Council.
Statement on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
(as adopted by the April 2019 Council)
The American Mathematical Society is committed to promoting and facilitating equity, diversity and inclusion throughout the mathematical sciences. For its own long-term prosperity as well as that of the public at large, our discipline must connect with and appropriately incorporate all sectors of society. We reaffirm the pledge in the AMS Mission Statement to "advance the status of the profession of mathematics, encouraging and facilitating full participation of all individuals," and urge all members to conduct their professional activities with this goal in mind.
The prize will be awarded every three years for a work published in the preceding six years.
The amount is the standard AMS award for research prizes (currently $5000).
The business of this committee can be done by email or videoconference.
Note to the Chair

Committee Chairs are asked to submit committee records on yearly basis. Chairs can submit material at their discretion, and some materials that they may wish to provide are meeting minutes, agenda, and emails.
