The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.

The inaugural class of Fellows were announced November 1, 2012.

 

The goals of the Fellows program are:

  • To honor not only the extraordinary but also the excellent.
  • To lift the morale of the profession by providing an honor more accessible than those currently available.
  • To make mathematicians more competitive for awards, promotion, and honors when they are being compared with colleagues from other disciplines.
  • To support the advancement of more mathematicians in leadership positions in their own institutions and in the broader society.
