Doeblin Prize 2016
During the 2016 Bernoulli World Congress in Toronto, Allan Sly was awarded the Doeblin Prize. Sara van de Geer as Bernoulli Society President added the following to accompany the awarding of the prize:
This prize is awarded to a single individual for outstanding research in the field of probability, and who is at the beginning of his or her mathematical career. The Committee for Conferences on Stochastic Processes has elected you as the prize winner.
You are a very broad young probabilist, with great taste for fundamental problems at the intersection between probability theory, statistics, statistical physics and theoretical computer science. You have worked on topics such as Glauber dynamics for the Ising model, random k-satisfiability, interacting particle systems, the connection between computational complexity and phase transitions. Each of these topics has witnesed fundamental progress due to your efforts.
You are invited to submit to the journal Probability Theory and Related Fields a paper for publication as the Wolfgang Doeblin Prize Article, and will also be invited to present the Doeblin Prize Lecture at Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications 2017.
Then, I hereby hand over the certificate, as well as an official letter of the BS.
