“Michael Lacey: The Mathematical Matrix Professor For The Ages”

At the young age of only fifty-eight, the renowned mathematician Michael Lacey has won many prestigious awards, authored novels and even solved a complex matter relating to laws of iterated logarithm due to his profound acumen. Lacey is currently a mathematics expert and professor with the University of Georgia Institute of Technology.

Throughout his professional career he has studied and worked the mathematical theories and principles involving harmonic analysis, probability and ergodic theory.

These three areas are considered to be interrelated as scientists have discovered. For example, harmonic data analysis can be applied to substantiate convergence outcomes for ergodic averages for an arithmetic mean.

Lacey attended the University of Illinois where he achieved his Doctor of Philosophy degree. After earning his degree, Lacey was hired at the notable University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Here, along with comrade Walter Phillip, presented evidence for his and others belief in the Central Limit Theorem.

The Central Limit Theorem is a statistical hypothesis that asserts providing an adequately large specimen size from a community of people with a predetermined level of divergence, the average of all specimens from the same group or community will be equivalent to the average of the population.

This was a relatively large scientific finding and contribution to the scientific community. Michael Lacey also held a postdoctoral position at LSU. From here, Lacey transferred to Louisiana State University beginning in 1989 and remained for the next seven years. Here he was awarded the National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship.

For his work, regarding solving the Hilbert Transform theory that mimics or shadows the Carleson’s theory that affirms the pointwise merging of Fourier series, he was awarded the Salem Prize.

Michael Lacey  after solving the conjecture and winning the prestigious Salem award, moved to the Georgia Institute of Technology. Here, he serves as a Mathematics Professor and working closely with Professor Xiaochun Li was given a Guggenheim Fellowship. He joined the American Mathematics Society in 2012 as an act of philanthropic works. Read more: Michael Lacey | Mathalliance and Michael Lacey | Wikipedia

Here, he regularly contributed in a spectrum of programs including scholarships, international assistance with schools, mathematical research and like programs. From 2012 to 2013 he was involved in the CAS Project for college students facilitating “Related Function Theory and Time-Frequency Analysis program.”

Lacey is well respected among his constituents and continues to contribute to society by imparting his knowledge on students and through his generous work with the AMS.

The Diplomatic Gem that is Daniel Taub

 Education and Career

Born and raised in the UK by Israeli parents, Daniel went to Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School in Elstree, Hertfordshire. While in the institution, he was awarded honorary marks to grant him admission to University College in Oxford, University College in London. He would later join Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

After his studies at the university, he moved to Israel. Since then he has served as a combat medic in the IDF and as a reserve officer in its division of international law. This position required him to give up his 30 year-long, British citizenship for an Israeli nationality.

In 1991, Daniel Taub went to work for the foreign ministry, where he honed his auspicious legal and diplomatic skills in various posts. In 2011, he had to make the change and go back to the UK as the new Israeli Ambassador.

The highlight of going back to what was once his home country was meeting Her Majesty the Queen dressed immaculately complete with a kippah, a sign that despite his UK upbringing he was a faithful Orthodox Jew.

Diplomatic Achievements as an Ambassador

In the four years that he served as the Israeli ambassador to the UK, trade between the two countries doubled. During his tenure, the two nations realized a significant deepening of academic, cultural, and business links between the two countries.

While speaking at the British Israeli Business Awards, the British Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills, Sajid Javid, announced that the increasing trade between the two nations had entered a golden era.

According to the Israel-Britain Chamber of Commerce, bilateral trade surpassed the $5.5 billion mark, and over 300 Israeli businesses were started and remain operational to date. His efforts in the business community earned him an award in January 2013, the Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Honoree for his support for young entrepreneurs with startup companies.

Warrior for Peace

During the Israel-Palestinian peace negotiation, Taub was extensively involved in the process.

His duties included helping to negotiate agreements reached upon by the two countries, as well as traveling with his Palestine Counterpart as part of a benchmark mission to Northern Ireland. He also served as a member in the Israel-Syrian negotiations. Daniel Taub’s life is one to be admired.
