The I. Martin Isaacs Prize is awarded for excellence in writing of a research article published in a primary journal of the AMS in the past two years.

About this Prize

The prize focuses on the attributes of excellent writing, including clarity, grace, and accessibility; the quality of the research is implied by the article's publication in a primary journal and is not a criterion for this prize.

Professor Isaacs is the author of several graduate-level textbooks and of about 200 research papers on finite groups and their characters, with special emphasis on groups-such as solvable groups-that have an abundance of normal subgroups. He is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, and recevied teaching awards from the University of Wisconsin and fro the School of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin. He is especially proud of his 29 successful PhD students.

The Isaacs Prize is awarded annually.
