The Mathematical Genius

Michael Lacey is an accomplished American mathematical genius, born September 26, 1959. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois in 1987. He became a 2012 fellow of the American Mathematical Society. He has over 20 publications dating from 2001-2013, and over 30 colloquims dating as far back as 1998.

His ten most recent research papers have been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Salem Prize, Guggenheim Foundation, the Fulbright Foundation, the Simons Foundation and other mathematical research institutes.

Just to name a few of his papers, Integer sequences with big gaps and the pointwise ergodic theorem (1999), On the Calderon Conjectures for the bilinear Hilbert Transform (1998), and On the Bilinear Hilbert transform (1998), as an example of his expertise in the field.

For those who are mathematically inclined, probability under Banach spaces and the law of the iterated logarithm for empirical characteristic functions, was the center of Lacy’s doctorate thesis. His research is regarded as the complete normed vector space, which is a mathematical function of analysis.

This concept was actually a continuation of a study started in 1920 by a famous Polish mathematician, named Stefan Banach. Furthermore, he is accredited to probability, ergodic theory and harmonic analysis. Ergodic theory and harmonic analysis are complicated branches of math and science (for the lay person).

In 1996, Lacy became a Professor of Mathematics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and continued to be recognized with awards, fellows and as a coveted advisor. From 2001-2013, he received $3,392,000 in grants, and received a Guggeheim Fellowship in 2004.

According to Wikipedia, this Fellowship is only given to those who demonstrated exceptional ability for productive scholarship. Lacey adds to his accomplishments the Salem Prize in 1996, which he shared the honor with Christophy Thiele for solving a conjecture by Alberto Calderon (an Argentinian mathematician), which was part of a study of the bilinear Hilbert transform.

Michael Lacey’s CV includes his directorship of training grants, such as the Vertical Integration of Research and Education and the Military Career Transition Program from the National Science Foundation. Today he continues being a mentor and professor to mathematical students.
