Professor Louis-Pierre Arguin (Mathematics) has won a $278,839 grant from the National Science Foundation to study extreme value statistics in probabilistic number theory.

The funding will be disbursed from 2022 to 2024 and will support Arguin’s research, travel, and conference and workshop participation. The grant will also provide funding for two PhD students and two Baruch undergraduate research assistants. The undergrads will work on codes of numerical experiments.
