Richard Peter Stanley (born June 23, 1944) is an Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. From 2000 to 2010, he was the Norman Levinson Professor of Applied Mathematics.^{[1]} He received his Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1971 under the supervision of GianCarlo Rota.^{[2]} He is an expert in the field of combinatorics and its applications to other mathematical disciplines.^{[3]}
Contributions
Stanley is known for his twovolume book Enumerative Combinatorics (1986–1999).^{[4]}^{[5]} He is also the author of Combinatorics and Commutative Algebra (1983) and well over 200 research articles in mathematics. He has served as thesis advisor to more than 58 doctoral students, many of whom have had distinguished careers in combinatorial research.^{[2]}
Awards and honors
Stanley's distinctions include membership in the National Academy of Sciences (elected in 1995), the 2001 Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition,^{[6]} the 2003 Schock Prize,^{[3]} a plenary lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians (in Madrid, Spain),^{[7]} and election in 2012 as a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.^{[8]} In 2022 he was awarded the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Lifetime Achievement.^{[9]}
