Wiscons Awarded NSF Research Fellowship
November 1, 2011
Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics Joshua Wiscons has received an award from the National Science Foundation’s International Research Fellowship Program funding his proposal titled “Multiply transitive and generically multiply transitive groups of finite Morley rank.”
The fellowship will allow Wiscons to pursue his research in collaboration with host mathematician Professor Katrin Tent of Universität Münster during a two-year stay in Münster, Germany, beginning in July, 2012.
According to Wiscons’ proposal abstract, “This project advances the classification of the simple groups of finite Morley rank that have a multiply transitive action on some object and, consequently, furthers the current effort to classify all simple groups of finite Morley rank. Additionally, this project investigates the more general class of generically multiply transitive groups of finite Morley rank.”
