The Euler Book Prize
I know there's a lot going on that's troubling right now, but here's a little ray of sun.
Christopher Jackson and I were awarded the Mathematical Association of America's Euler Book Prize for Mathematics for Human Flourishing at the 2021 Joint Math Meetings.
Good memories around this day. Exactly one year ago today the book came out and 4 years ago yesterday I gave the speech that became the book.
Chris was especially thrilled. Although Chris would not have been able to accept the award in person, we were planning on his mother coming to accept the award on his behalf, if the meetings had not gone virtual.
Here's the citation and our personal responses.
