Professor Ablowitz recently received a Rothschild Distinguished Fellowship from the Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge England, UK. Part of the upcoming summer and fall Ablowitz will be a member of the program on Complex Analysis: techniques, applications, and computations. During the program he will give a keynote lecture and attend other programs and activities for four weeks.

The Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematics is devoted to the advancement of mathematics “in the broadest sense.” To achieve this, they employ strict criterion for program selection. According to their website, programs are selected by the extent to which the topic is “interdisciplinary, bringing together research workers with very different backgrounds and expertise.” Since the institute opened in July 1992, 27 Fields Medalists, 9 Nobel Laureates, 23 Wolf Prize winners, and 12 Abel Prize winners have attended programs at the institute.  

The Institute of Mathematics is able to award fellowships through generous donations. The fellowship awarded to Ablowitz was made possible by donations from NM Rothschild and Sons. The institute has also received donations from Hewlett-Packard, the Dill Faulkes Foundation, Leverhulme Trust, CNRS, Rosenbaum Foundation, PF Charitable Trust, London Mathematical Society, Prudential Corporation plc and the Clay Mathematics Institute.
