Caltech's Vladimir Markovic, professor of mathematics, has been chosen to receive the 2012 Clay Research Award from the Clay Mathematics Institute.
He shares the prize with Brown University's Jeremy Kahn, who was previously an assistant professor of mathematics at Caltech. They were honored for their work in hyperbolic geometry.
At this year's Clay Research Conference in June at Oxford University, the institute will formally present Kahn and Markovic with the award, and both will present talks on their work.
