Mathematics and Statistics’ Chapman Honored as Fellow of American Mathematical Society

chapmanDr. Scott Chapman, Professor and Scholar in Residence in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Sam Houston State University, was recently invited to join the 2017 class of the Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), after nomination by department chair Dr. Brian Loft and letters of support from three current Fellows earlier this year.  

Designation as a Fellow of the AMS is a very prestigious distinction. As the AMS website notes: “The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.”

Dr. Chapman joins a very select group of distinguished scholars and researchers designated as Fellows of the AMS. Dr. Loft notes that have been 50 Fellows in the state of Texas, and all but three of them are from the state’s flagship institutions (University of Texas, Texas A&M University), and Rice University. Dr. Chapman’s naming as an AMS Fellow is a great honor for Sam Houston State University.

Details of the Fellows of the AMS program, including a history of its enactment, can be found at the AMS website.
