David P. Robbins Prize

Category: Prizes or Awards / Mathematical scientists/faculty

The Robbins Prize is for a paper with the following characteristics: it shall report on novel research in algebra, combinatorics or discrete mathematics and shall have a significant experimental component; it shall be on a topic which is broadly accessible and shall provide a simple statement of the problem and clear exposition of the work.

This prize was established in 2005 in memory of David P. Robbins by members of his family. Robbins, who died in 2003, received his Ph.D. in 1970 from MIT. He was a long-time member of the Institute for Defense Analysis Center for Communications Research and a prolific mathematician whose work (much of it classified) was in discrete mathematics.
