George McNulty, a mathematics professor in USC’s College of Arts and Sciences, was named a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (AMS). Mathematical scientists from around the world, representing more than 600 institutions, were selected for this inaugural class of fellows.

McNulty was surprised and honored to be named among the initial group of fellows. “I owe much to the university for providing such a splendid environment to pursue my mathematical work,” he said. “I particularly appreciate the support I have had since joining the faculty in 1975 from the deans and the department chairs.”

The Fellow of the AMS designation recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication and utilization of mathematics.

"The AMS is the world's largest and most influential society dedicated to mathematical research, scholarship and education,” said AMS President Eric M. Friedlander. “Recent advances in mathematics include solutions to age-old problems and key applications useful for society. The new AMS Fellows Program recognizes some of the most accomplished mathematicians -- AMS members who have contributed to our understanding of deep and important mathematical questions, to applications throughout the scientific world and to educational excellence."

Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, the 30,000-member AMS fulfills its mission through programs and services that promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life.
