Two Math Faculty Members Named Distinguished Professor
Two faculty members in the Ph.D. Program in Mathematics, Arthur Apter (Baruch College) and Jay Rosen (College of Staten Island), have been appointed distinguished professors, effective February 1, 2014.
Arthur W. Apter, a member of the doctoral faculty since 2006, received his Ph.D. in mathematics from MIT in 1978. His research interests include mathematical logic, specifically set theory: large cardinals and forcing.
Jay S. Rosen, a member of the doctoral faculty since 1987, received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University in 1974. Rosen’s research area is probability. His current research centers on the study of stochastic processes, in particular Markov processes and Gaussian processes. He is actively exploring a link between these usually separate areas, which relate the local times and intersection local times of Markov processes to Gaussian chaoses.
