Math professor wins international recognition

Assistant professor of mathematics at UTSC Gábor Pete has been named co-winner of the 2011 Rollo Davidson Prize, a major international award given annually to early-career probabilists. Pete shares the honour with Cristophe Garban of the École Normale Supérieur de Lyon.
According to the Rollo Davidson Trust website, Pete and Garban received the award for "striking and important new results for planar random processes, particularly in establishing a theory of noise sensitivity for critical percolation and the application of this theory to dynamical percolation.”
Pete is the second member of the CMS faculty at UTSC to have received this prestigious recognition. Associate professor Balint Virag was also a co-winner in 2008.
