Institute for Mathematical Sciences
The Institute for Mathematical Sciences, founded in 1989, is closely allied to the Stony Brook Mathematics Department. The Institutes's Director is Misha Lyubich; its CoDirector is John Milnor, a 1962 Fields Medalist, and the winner of the 1989 Wolf and 2011 Abel Prizes. Dennis Sullivan, an Institute member, is a winner of the 2009 Wolf Prize. The Institutes's primary research focus has been on Dynamical Systems with an emphasis on the lowdimensional real and complex cases. With Oleg Viro recently joining the Institute, LowDimensional Topology has become another important direction of research at the IMS.
