Adam Wade Marcus (born in August 1979) is an American mathematician whose interests lie primarily in fields associated with combinatorics. He currently splits his time between New Haven, Connecticut where he holds a guest appointment at Yale University and Boston, Massachusetts where he is Cofounder and Chief Scientist at Crisply.[5]

Education[edit]

Marcus completed his undergraduate studies at the Washington University in St. Louis. He later completed his doctoral studies under the supervision of Prasad Tetali at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Following his graduation in 2008, he spent four years as a Gibbs Assistant Professor in Applied Mathematics at Yale University. He is an alumnus of Budapest Semesters in Mathematics and the Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics.

Mathematical results[edit]

In 2003, Marcus and his Fulbright mentor, Gábor Tardos, solved a combinatorial problem that was known to imply a solution to the Stanley–Wilf conjecture. In 2013, together with Daniel Spielman and Nikhil Srivastava, he provided a positive solution to the Kadison–Singer problem using methods developed during his time at Yale.


Awards[edit]

During 2003–2004, Marcus was a Fulbright scholar.[6] In 2008, he was awarded the inaugural Dénes König Prize in Discrete Mathematics from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics for his work in solving the Stanley–Wilf conjecture.[7] The team of Marcus, Spielman, and Srivastava was awarded the 2014 Pólya Prize for their work in solving the Kadison-Singer problem.
