Two Members of the CUNY Math Doctoral Faculty Named 'Distinguish Professor'
Doctoral Faculty members Prof. Arthur Apter (Baruch College) and Prof. Jay Rosen (College of Staten Island) were each recently named "Distinguish Professor."
Prof. Arthur W. Apter, a member of CUNY Doctoral Faculty since 2006, received his Ph.D. in mathematics from M.I.T. in 1978. Prof. Apter's research interests include mathematical logic, specifically set theory: large cardinals and forcing.
Prof. Jay S. Rosen, a member of CUNY Doctoral Faculty since 1987, received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University in 1974. Prof. 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. He is also studying large deviations of local times and intersection local times. Further work of his involves the study of exceptional points for Markov processes and random walks.
