SFI Professor Cristopher Moore has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society for fundamental contributions at the interface between nonlinear physics, statistical physics, and computer science, including complex network analysis, phase transitions in NP-complete problems, and the computational complexity of physical simulation.
APS Fellowship is awarded to physicists with exemplary careers who meet the criteria of “outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education,” according to the society’s website. Only 1/2 of 1% of APS members are elected by their peers for fellowship in a given year.
Moore joins SFI Professor Sidney Redner in APS fellowship, as well as Science Board member and External Professor Seth Lloyd, External Professors Mark Newman and Jonathan Machta, and other members of SFI research community.
