In 1987, at the end of my first year as Chairman, I announced the appointment of Dr. Marvin L. Goldberger as Director of the Institute. These first two years of his Directonhip have seen the Institute strengthened in several ways, principally in the new energies of his administration, the appointment of three new perma- nent faculty members and the continued vitalizing flow of visiting scholars through our four Schools. It is to the credit of the faculty that the Institute continues to attract so many of the world's finest scholars in all the fields of mathematical, scientific and human- istic research it sponsors. My colleagues and I on the Board of Trustees com- mend the faculties of all four Schools for everything they have done to assure that the Institute maintains its preeminence as a center of independent scholarly inquiry. We also congratulate Dr. Goldberger on the many initiatives that he has taken in his first two years as Director to strengthen the Institute's bonds to the worldwide community of which it is a part. In 1988, in the middle of the period covered by this report, two Trustees reached the end of their active terms as members of the Board. Gladys K. Del- mas, who had joined the Board in 1978, was elected Honorary Trustee and Honorary Vice Chairman. Frank E. Taplin, whose membership on the Board dates back to 1971, was elected Trustee Emeritus. In 1989, Zeph Stewart, Trustee since 1979, retired, and Donald B. Straus, who fint joined the Board in 1968, became Trustee Emeritus. We thank these four colleagues most warmly for their continuing support and fiiendship. During the same two years, the Board lost two of its valued memben, Thornton E Bradshaw and Michael V. Forrestal. At the Board's meeting on May 6, 1989 the following resolutions were adopted: "Thornton F. Bradshaw joined the Board of Trustees of the Institute for Advanced Study in the spring of 1982. He served on the Nominating and Devel- opment Committees, chairing the Nominating Coinmittee fi-om 1985 until his death in 1988. In 1986-87, he led the Search Committee to its successfial choice of Marvin Goldberger as sixth Director of the Institute. Through Brad's RCA connections, fijnds were secured for a number of visiting members in the Schools of Mathematics and Natural Sciences fi-om 1985 to 1987. A man of many parts and wide interests. Brad brought to the Institute both sensitivity to academic issues and a finely honed business expertise. He was benign, generous and right- hearted, and his gende and wise voice will be deeply missed in our counsels. The Board of Trustees hereby expresses its gratitude for the years he gave us and extends to Pat Bradshaw its heartfelt sympathies for the loss which we all feel." Institute for advanced study "Michael V. Forrestal joined the Board of Trustees of the Institute for Advanced Study in 1969 and served continuously since that time as a Trustee, except for a leave of absence, from 1978-80, during his tenure as President of the United States-U.S.S.R. Trade and Economic Council. As an Institute Trustee, he served on the Nominating, Land Development, Development and Finance Commit- tees; he was a member of the Executive Committee since 1974. In 1975-76, he chaired the Search Committee which selected Harry Woolf as the fifth Director of the Institute. The Board relied often on his legal advice, whether the matter concerned film royalties, the intricacies of the Bylaws or the weighing of possible financial transactions. Mike was always balanced in his opinions, urbane and to the point. He brought with him an international outlook and a long view, a sense of the Institute's place in space and time. He enjoyed his work with what he once described to a former director as his "happy band of unruly academics," and his untimely loss is keenly felt by his colleagues here, even as we are grateful for the commitment and fine contribution he made over the many years of his service to the Institute." In 1988 we were delighted to welcome four new members to the Board: Marel- la Caracciolo Agnelli, Leon Levy, Max Palevsky and Ladislaus von Hoffmann. Marella Caracciolo Agnelli was born in Florence, Italy and educated at the Academic Julian and the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. She has worked as a pho- tographer and editor for Conde Nast and is known as a designer of fabrics and fiamiture. In 1987 she co-authored a book, Gardens of the Italian Villas. She is chairman of Associazione Amid Torinesi di Arte Contemporanea , a member of the Council of Amici di Palazzo Grassi in Venice, vice-chairman of the Italian National Council of the United World Colleges, member of the International Council of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, chairman of ScHola per Terapisti della Riabilitazioiie and chairman of Associazione Amici degli Handicappati . Leon Levy was bom in New York and educated at the City College of New York. From 1948 to 1951 he was a security analyst with Hirsch & Company and then became a General Partner of Oppenheimer & Company [now Odyssey Partners] in New York City. He serves on the boards of numerous corporations, and is chairman of the boards of Oppenheimer Mutual Funds and Avatar Hold- ings, Inc. A trustee of Bard College, of the Jerome Levy Foundation for Eco- nomic Research and of New York University's Institute of Fine Arts, he is also a Director of the International Foundation for Art Research. Max Palevsky was bom in Chicago and received his B.S. and Ph.B. degrees at the University of Chicago; a year of postgraduate study at the Univenity of Cali- fornia at Los Angeles followed shortly. Mr. Palevsky is an industrialist who has been affiliated with the Bendix Corporation, Packard Bell Electronics, Scientific 12 REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN Data Systems, Xerox Corporation, Intel Corporation, Komag, Inc. and Daisy Systems, Inc. For the last two decades he has been a member of the Democratic Advisory Committee, and he is a member of the board of directors of the American Civil Liberties Union. Ladislaus von Hoffinann was bom in Berlin, Germany. After completing his edu- cation at the University of Freiburg he worked with an affiliate of the Federation of German Industry and then was associated, from 1953 to 1960, with Wasag Chemie in Germany and the Middle East. In 1960 he joined the International Finance Corporation and rose to the position of Executive Vice President before moving in 1977 to the Hochschild Group's Consolidated Mining and Industries. In 1984 he created a company, Omicron Holdings, Inc., and in 1987 he estab- lished Omicron Investments, Inc., a personally held company. He is now also president of Arcana Foundation, a private charitable foundation set up in 1986. The other Trustees and I look forward to a long association with the four distin- guished new members of the Board and to many years of effective and imagina- tive collaboration in the service of the Institute. JAMES D. WOLFENSOHN, Chairman of the Board 13 REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR My association with the Institute for Advanced Study and its mission, programs and personalities dates back to 1953, when 1 spent a year at Princeton University on leave from the University of Chicago. During that year I spent a good deal of rime at the Institute, where I had several collaborators and was friendly both with many faculty members and with the Director, J. Robert Oppenheimer. The spring of 1 954 was a traumatic period because of the Atomic Energy Commis- sion's hearings in Washington "In the N4atter ofj. Robert Oppenheimer," in my judgment one of the saddest, most shamefril episodes in American history. I joined the Physics Department at Princeton University in 1957 and again spent much time with Oppenheimer and others at the Institute. 1 was a Member of the School of Natural Sciences on three separate occasions while on leave from the University [1966-67, 1969-70 and 1976-77]. I was and still am a close friend of Carl Kaysen, who succeeded Oppenheimer as Director in 1 966 and held that office until 1 976. Harry Woolf my predecessor, and I overlapped briefly before I left for California in 1978 to assume the Presidency of the California Institute of Technology. This is all by way of saying that I was no stranger to the Institute or it to me when I was asked to become the Director in 1987. One of the first things that struck me about the Institute after nine years away from Princeton was the evidence of its continuing importance in research and scholarship. Like everyone else in academic life, I had always been aware of the unmatched excellence of the Institute faculty and of the impressive numbers of the world's leading scholars and scientists who had begun and enhanced their careers as visitmg scholars at the Institute. But I was also aware that in the past twenty or so years the number of fint— rate research universities in the United States and abroad had grown steadily and, with them, the range of opportunities for both post— doctoral researchers and senior visiting scholars. With all these new and competing alternatives, the Institute might have expected to find that attract- ing and retaining its faculty was no longer so easy, and that demand for its 150 memberships was in decline. On the contrary, the Institute is stronger than ever. Three faculty appointments during my first years as Director confirm that the prestige and drawdng power of the Institute are undiminished. In 1987 the School of Natural Sciences appointed Edward Witten. He was trained at Brandeis University and Princeton University and had been named Professor of Physics at Princeton University in 1980, fol- lowing three years as a member of the Harvard Society of Fellows. During his years on the faculty at Princeton Univenity he had emerged as one of the world leaden in the theory of elementary particles. REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR Then, in January 1989, I had the pleasure of announcing the appointment of Frank Wilczek, who was educated at the University of Chicago and at Princeton University and had taught at Princeton, the University of California at Santa Bar- bara and Harvard University. He was simultaneously being wooed by Harvard, but the Institute prevailed. He works in condensed matter theory and elemen- tary particle physics. In collaboration with his wife, Elizabeth Devine, he has wnt- ten a popular book on modem science called Longing for the Harmonies. The Institute's prominence among centers of humanistic research' has also been demonstrated recently. In May of 1989 it was announced in London that John H. Elliott, Professor in the School of Historical Studies, had been named Regius Pro- fessor of Modem History at the University of Oxford, effective in the summer of 1990. After a careful search the School filled the vacancy by appointing Oleg Grabar, a world-renowned Harvard University scholar in the field of Islamic art and culture. He will join our faculty in the summer of 1990, bringing with him a field of scholarship that has never been represented on the permanent faculty. While reporting news of the faculty, I also must note that Morton White, Pro- fessor in the School of Historical Studies since 1970, retired in 1988. As you will see fi-om the School's own report, he remains very active as Professor Emeritus. It is my sad duty to report the deaths of two Professors Emeriti. Hassler Whitney, who was appointed Professor in the School of Mathematics in 1952 [Professor Emeritus in 1977], died in Princeton on May 10, 1989. Benjamin D. Meritt, Professor in the School of Historical Studies since 1935 [Professor Emeritus since 1969], died in Austin, Texas on July 7, 1989. The Institute's community of visiting scholars is approximately eight times the size of our permanent faculty. The scholars picked from a world-wide pool of well over 1 ,000 applicants are as remarkable for their credentials as they are for the diversity of their fields and methods of research. It remains true that the best and brightest of the post-doctoral crop of mathematicians, physicists and astro- physicists almost invariably accept the positions that the Institute offers, and we have more applications from senior scholars on sabbatical than our offices and apartments can accommodate. In the Schools of Historical Studies and of Social Science the visiting scholars are certainly comparable in their excellence and diversity to their colleagues in Mathematics and the Natural Sciences. Members of these two Schools tend on the whole to be established and mature scholars. Both Schools also have some relatively young Members each year. In 1988-89, in fact, the School of Histori- cal Studies inaugurated a program of Two-Year Memberships for Assistant Pro- fesson who can use their time at the Instimte to consolidate their scholarly cre- dentials before facing tenure decisions at their home institutions. 15 Institute for advanced study Neither our permanent faculty nor our community of visiting scholars would be fially productive wdthout the inspiration of the other. Life at the Institute is domi- nated by the interaction of these two lively groups. As indicated by this report's lists of Members, Visiton and Research Staff, our Trustees and I have the privilege of presiding over a community of scholars whose cosmopolitan character has been dramatically reinforced by the participation of scholan from once isolated countries such as the People's Republic of China, Romania and the Soviet Union. III The Institute's continuing appeal to scholars from all over the world and the gradual accumulation of the research materials that our work requires have of course created a serious shortage of various kinds of space. Early in my tenure as Director it became obvious that the Library of the Schools of Mathematics and Natural Sciences in Fuld Hall was bursting at the seams. "We considered moving the Library to the Annex of the Historical Studies and Social Science library building. The Annex had originally been intended for this use, but it has been indispensable for more than two decades as the Institute's one large lecture hall. After much discussion we decided that the best solution would be to install compact shelving for older mathematics and physics journals and books on the lower level of the Historical Studies— Social Science Library. Addi- tional space was made available in the Historical Studies— Social Science Library by moving the offices of the American School of Classical Studies to another Institute building. This project gives both Libraries adequate space for the next fifteen or twenty years. We gratefully acknowledge the gifb of members of the Institute Board of Trustees, and in particular the challenge gift of Gladys K. Delmas, that made this project possible. IV Soon after my arrival in 1987 another space problem was brought to my atten- tion, and it was apparent that this would require a more ambitious response. This space problem has its most direct impact on the Schools of Mathematics and of Natural Sciences but in fact affects the Institute as a whole. For many years roughly one— third of the Institute's mathematicians have had offices in the old Electronic Computer Project building at the foot of Olden Lane [it once housed John von Neumann's pioneering digital computer]. The isolation of these members from the mathematics faculty and from the rest of the community has become an increasingly serious problem. After carefiil deliberation we have concluded, with the full support of the Board of Trustees, that the only reasonable solution is to construct a new buUding. We have retained the renowned architect Cesar Pelli, who is now designing a 23,000 square-foot building which will contain office space and a seminar room for Fac- ulty and Members of the School of Mathematics. The Electronic Computer 16 REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR Project building will then be available for other uses. By significantly increasing the total number of offices on the main campus the new buUding will relieve the shortage of office space that has been felt by all four Schools. The auditorium that is being planned as a part of the new building will also bring immediate ben- efits to the entire Institute community and to all the othen who flock to our lec- tures, films and concerts. We are already actively developing plans for a campaign that will generate fiands for this building, which we hope to see completed in 1991 or early 1992. V I want to close with a word of thanks to all of the many fiiends who have given support to the Institute during my first two years as Director. Acknowledgement of gifts and grants from foundations, corporations, government agencies, associa- tions and individuals is made in the section that follows. Without such support the Institute would have long since lost its position of leadership among the world's centers of scholarship and culture. In addition to thanking the Chairman and the entire Board of Trustees, I should like to note with deep gratitude the service rendered over the years by Thornton F. Bradshaw and Michael V. Forrestal. They both died suddenly while still active and at the peak of their powen. Their fiiendship and commitment to our work will always be remembered by everyone who cares about the Institute. MARVIN L.

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Institute's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are fi-ee of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, such financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Institute at June 30, 1989 and the results of its operations and the changes in its financial position for the year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

Certain prior year amounts presented for comparative purposes have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Fund Accountin(;> The accounts of the Institute for Advanced Study [the "Institute"] are maintained in accordance with the principles of "fiand accounting." This is the procedure by which resources for various purposes are classified for accounting and reporting purposes into fijnds that are in accordance with activities or objectives specified. Separate accounts are maintained for each fijnd; however, in the accompanying financial statements, fiands that have similar characteristics have been combined into fiand groups. Fund balances restricted by outside sources are so indicated and are distinguished fi-om unrestricted fiands allocated or designated to specific purposes by action of the governing board. Externally restricted fiands may only be utilized in accordance with the purpose established by the grantor of such fiinds. In contrast, the govern- ing board retains fiall control over unrestricted fiands to use in achieving any of the Institute's objectives. True endowment fiands are subject to the restrictions of the gift: instruments which require that the principal be invested in perpetuity; income on such fiinds may be utilized without restriction. Quasi-endowment fiands have been estab- lished by the governing board to fianction as endowment fiands, and any portion of these fiands may be expended. Unrestricted fiands fimctioning as endowments have no external restrictions. However, certain of these fiands have been inter- nally designated to support specific needs of the Institute. All gains and losses arising from the sale, collection, or other disposition of investments and other non-cash assets are accounted for in the fund which owned such assets. Ordinary income earned on investments and receivables is generally accounted for in the fiand owning such assets. However, unrestricted income earned on investments of endowment and similar fiands is accounted for as revenue in unrestricted operating fiands, and restricted income is accounted for as deferred restricted revenue until used in accordance with the terms of the restriction or transferred to endowment and similar fiands. 26 NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Plaiu Assets and Depreciation Uses of operating fUnds for plant acquisitions and principal debt service pay- ments are accounted for as transfers to plant funds. Proceeds from the sale of plant assets, if unrestricted, are transferred to operating flinds or, if restricted, to deferred amounts restricted for plant acquisitions. Depreciation is provided over the estimated usefiil lives of the respective assets on a straight-line basis [build- ings and capital improvements 20-40 years, equipment 3-6 years]. B ■ INVESTMENTS Investments purchased by the Institute are recorded at cost; investments received by gift are recorded at the fair market value at the date of donation. Endowment and similar funds investments at June 30, 1989 are comprised of the following: CARRYING MARKET VALUE VALUE Pooled investments: Cash equivalents S 39,481,405 S 39,481.405 Equity secunties 65,861,850 76, 583, 738 Debt securities 65, 386, 369 66, 745, 284 Mortgages and notes receivable from faculty and staff 2, 825, 929 2, 825,929 Investment accounts receivable 8, 342, 490 8, 342, 490 Investment accounts payable [7, 653, 993] [7, 653, 993] Total pooled investments 174, 244, 050 186, 324, 853 Funds separately invested 17. 925 28. 088 Total $ 174,261,975 $ 186, 352, 941 Marketable debt and equity securities are carried in the aggregate at lower of cost [amortized, in the case of debt securities] or market. Realized gains and losses are computed based on the average cost of the investment. Equity securities include the Institute's interest in partnerships with a carrying value of $27, 331, 913 at June 30, 1989. The Institute accounts for these investments on the equity basis and, accordingly, recognizes its proportionate share of ordinary income and realized gains and losses attributable to the invest- ments of the partnerships. The Institute's proportionate share of ordinary income and realized gains and losses was $114, 678 and $1, 469, 367, respec- tively, for the year ended June 30, 1989. Substantially all the assets of endowment and similar fiinds are pooled with each individual flind subscribing to or disposing of units on the basis of the market 27 Institute for advanced study value per unit, determined on a quarterly basis. Earnings per unit of the pooled investments for the year ended June 30, 1989, exclusive of realized gains and losses, amounted to $380 after deducting management fees. The following table summarizes changes in carrying and market values of the pooled investments: pooled assets market VALUE CARRYING VALUE NET CHANGE June 30, 1988 !

The obUga- tion to pay the Authority on a periodic basis, in the amounts sufficient to cover principal and interest due on the bonds, is a general obUgation of the Institute and is collateralized by United States Treasury Notes, 8.875%, due February 15, 1996, with an aggregate face amount of $8, 625, 000. Interest expense on long-term debt for the year that ended June 30, 1989 was $624, 443, of which $302, 641 is payable at June 30, 1989. E • RETIREMENT PLANS Separate voluntary defined contribution retirement plans are in effect for faculty members and eligible staff personnel, both of which provide for annuities which are funded with the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association and/or the CoDege Retirement Equities Fund. Contributions for the year ended June 30, 1989 amounted to $616,000. In addition to the formal plans, the Board of Trustees or the Director has, at var- ious times, authorized the payment of pensions to certain members, employees and the widow of a deceased member. Total pension payments which aggregat- ed $86,000 for the year ended June 30, 1989 have been charged to expense, and no reserves have been provided for pensions payable in subsequent years. 29 Institute for advanced study In addition to providing pension benefits, the Institute provides certain health care and life insurance benefits for retired employees and faculty. Substantially all of the Institute's employees may become eligible for those benefits if they reach nonnal retirement age while working for the Institute. The cost of retiree health care and life insurance benefits is recognized as expense as premiums are paid. For fiscal year 1989, those costs totalled approximately $100,000. F • FUNDS HELD IN TRUST BY OTHERS The Institute is the residuary beneficiary of a trust under the Will of George Placzek, Deceased, and upon the death of the life tenant will be entitled to receive the corpus thereof The approximate market value of the assets under the Will, as reported by the administrator of the Estate, aggregated $1,683, 000 as of June 30, 1 989 and is not included in the accompanying financial statements. G • CHANGES IN DEFERRED RESTRICTED REVENUE Restricted receipts, which are recorded initially as deferred restricted revenue, are reported as revenues when expended in accordance with the terms of the restriction or transferred to quasi-endowment funds.

CAFFARELLI PIERRE DELIGNE ROBERT P. LANGLANDS JOHN w. MILNOR [Oswald Veblen Professor] THOMAS SPENCER Professor Emeriti DEANE MONTGOMERY ATLE SELBERG ANDRE AX^IL HASSLER WHITNEY* * Deceased May \0. 1989 Institute for advanced study Academic Activities of the School: Academic Year 1987-88 In informal collaboration with the School of Natural Sciences and with the help of a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the School of Mathematics held a program in string theory during the academic year 1987-88. It invited a num- ber of senior mathematicians and mathematical physicists, and they led seminars on string theory and related topics. There were three seminars on conformal field theory: D. Friedan and S. Shenker, term I; G. Segal, term I; and P. Goddard, term II. In addition, D. Olive held one on algebraic aspects of string theory; it was continued by J. Lepowsky and I. Frenkel, who discussed orbifold conformal field theory, aiming at the construction of a remarkable finite group called the Monster. Parallel lectures on the last topic were given by P. Deligne. M. Atiyah led a senunar on applications to 3-dimen- sional and 4— dimensional manifolds of ideas coming from physics. In term II, E. Witten continued with a series of lectures that presented a more powerftil heuristic approach to some of the same questions. The supergeometry seminar in term I was also related to physics, the theory it expounded being an outgrowth of the treatment by physicists of Fermi fields. In all these seminars an effort was made to have the fint lectures undersundable to the non— specialist. The presence of both mathematicians and mathematical physi- cists in the audience and the corresponding need for communication were hclpfial. The School also had a much smaller group on Drinfel'd modules. The parallels between the field Q of rational numbers and the fields Fp(X) of rational fijnc- tions over a finite field are well known, and Drinfel'd modules are a new version of this old idea. Several visitors presented their work on the subject. In their seminar on the Oppenheim conjecture, A. Borel and G. Prasad expounded Margulis's results on the approximation of numbers by the values of irrational quadratic forms and presented a generalization to number fields. Although the results have an arithmetic ring, the methods are group theoretic. In the academic year 1987-88 the School also sponsored a seminar on partial dif- ferential equations, held jointly with Princeton University; a seminar on differ- ential geometry; and the customary seminars on dynamical systems, number theory and topology. In addition, the members' seminar provided an opportuni- ty for all visitors to describe their own research, regardless of the field. In November 1987, the 11th Marston Morse Memorial Lecture, entided "The Einstein-Hilbert Variational Problem on the Space of Riemannian Metrics," was delivered by R. Schoen. 42 THE SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS The Herman Weyl Lectures were given by L. KadanofF on "Chaos and Univer- sality" [three lectures, January 26-February 4, 1988]. Lectures in commemoration of Ame Beurling were given on January 4, 1988 by L. Carleson, P. Malliavin and L. Ahlfors. Academic Activities of the School: Academic Year 1988—89 In the academic year 1988-89 the School had a special program on dynamical systems and invited L. Carleson as distinguished visiting professor. The dynami- cal systems seminar was very active, often meeting two or three times a week. Among many other topics and speakers in this seminar, Professor Carleson gave several lectures explaining the proof due to him and M. Benedicks, that the Henon map has a so-called strange attractor. The Henon map is a simple area- contracting map from two-dimensional space to itself that exhibits a complicated chaotic behavior when iterated in computer simulation. Despite many attempts, until Carleson's work with Benedicks, this behavior, which is also observed in many physical systems with dissipation, could not be explained analytically. A. Douady gave the 12th Marston Morse Memorial Lectures. The lectures, entided "Holomorphic Surgery," took place on December 5, 7 and 8 and dealt with holomorphic dynamical systems. There were two other smaller areas of concentration, with only a few visitors: partial differential equations and representations of p-adic groups. In particular, there was a seminar devoted primarily to a presentation of the work of C. Bush- nell, P. Kutzko and L. Morris on GLn, as their research developed during the course of their visit. In term I, a seminar on "Lie groups and quadratic forms" continued the previous year's seminar on approximations by irrational quadratic forms and then contin- ued in term 11 as a seminar on "locally symmetric varieties." In the number-theory seminar, G. Fallings gave a series of talks on his recent work on p-adic cohomology of algebraic varieties in term I. Then, during term II, E. Bombieri gave a course on diophantine approximation. In July, good use was made of the facilities of the Institute by the Clavius group, a group of Catholic mathematicians, mainly geometers, who assembled here for a month of seminars and discussions. As usual, the organized activities of the academic years 1987-88 and 1988-89 are to be viewed only as a part of the matiiematical Hfe at the Institute. Of equal, or greater, importance are individual research and the many informal discussions between members and faculty, for which the Institute provides a most favorable environment. 43 Institute for advanced study MEMBERS, VISITORS AND RESEARCH STAFF Academic year 1 987-88 GREG W.

ADLER [Ncw Jersey Albert Einstein Professor] JOHN N. BAHCALL FREEMAN J. DYSON PIET HUT FRANK WILCZEK * EDWARD WITTEN * Appointed in the academic year 1988-89 Members with Lon^Temj Appointments JULIAN H. BIGELOW OTTO E. NEUGEBAUER Institute for advanced study Academic Activities of the Faculty Academic Years 1987-88 and 1988-89 During these two academic years Stephen l. adler's research fell into three prin- cipal areas. His work on overrelaxation algorithms for Monte Carlo analysis had its genesis in a paper he wrote in 1981; he returned to this set of problems, pub- hshing a paper and speaking at conferences in Tallahassee and at Fermilab. His work in the area of quatemionic quantum mechanics will produce a book in which he details the quatemionic analogs of many of the results of standard non- relativistic quantum mechanics. He also dealt with the problems involved in a new approach to grand unification theory. During the academic year 1988-89 he taught the Intermediate Quantum Mechanics course at Princeton University. Professor Adler received the 1988 J. J. Sakurai Prize of the American Physical Society "for his work in elucidating the consequences of chiral symmetry through sum rules and low energy theorems." JOHN n. bahcall's main activity dunng the academic years 1987-88 and 1988-89 was the writing of a book entided Neutrino Astrophysics. It was published by Cam- bridge University Press in April 1989. The book summarizes the main achieve- ments and the fijture challenges of the subject, as preparations for understanding the new data that will be provided by experiments in progress. freeman J. DYSON devoted most of his time during the period covered by this report to work in pure mathematics and to reflecrions on broader aspects of sci- ence and society. The work in mathematics was stimulated by the 100th anniversary in 1987 of the birth of the great Indian scholar, Ramanujan, who died in 1920 leaving interesting problems unsolved. Professor Dyson's work on more general and public issues expressed itself in several lectures. These included the Danz Lectures, given at the University of Washington in 1 988 under the tide, "On Being the Right Size: Reflecrions on the Ecology of Scientific Pro- jects," and a lecture at Yale University's Gibbs 150th Anniversary Symposium in May 1989 on "Willard Gibbs and the Teaching of Science." His book, Infmite in All Directions, won the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science, and he was elected to the status of Associe Etranger of the French Academy of Sciences in Paris. PIET HUT'S research has continued to focus on the interface between computer science and astrophysics. Following contacts with an innovative company that produces a parallel computer with more than 65,000 processors, he collaborated with the company's scientists and colleagues from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Tokyo University to develop astrophysical software for parallel computers. The immediate results have been published; in time this project may lead to a new generation of computer codes capable of simulating the evo- lution of dense stellar systems. A projected study of collisions between galaxies 52 THE SCHOOL OF NATURAL SCIENCES was jeopardized with the withdrawal of National Science Foundation support for the John von Neumann Supercomputer Center in Princeton. The project is now being continued in Japan. Professor Hut also continues to study the evolu- tion of globular clusters in collaboration with colleagues at Princeton University, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Munich, Utrecht, Tokyo, Kyoto and elsewhere. FRANK WILCZEK, who joined the faculty in January 1989, pursued research in three principal areas. Working with Professor Edward Witten, Yi-Hong Chen and Bert Halperin, he demonstrated that ideal gases of certain kinds of anyons are superconducting at zero temperature. This work has since been extended in several directions, notably to give new insight into the quantized Hall effect. Professor Wilczek worked on several topics and published several papers relating to the quantum mechanics of cosmic strings and quantum hairs on black holes. Finally, with Curt Callan of Princeton University, he has begun a program to investigate several problems of physics that are difficult or obscure in flat space on spaces of constant negative curvature, where they seem to simphfy. EDWARD WITTEN, who joined the faculty in 1987, has spent most of the last three years working on geometrical applications of quantum field theory. The main successes have been a physical reinterpretation of "Donaldson theory" of four-dimensional geometry; a new description of the "Jones polynomial" of three-dimensional knot theory that for the first time explains its symmetries; and new interpretations and insights concerning general relativity in two and three dimensions. In the course of this work, many physical ideas have been applied to problems in geometry for the first time, and vice versa. These developments, some of which were forecast and advocated by former Institute Professor Sir Michael Atiyah at the string theory workshop at the Institute in 1987—88, have shown that many structures usually studied by string theorists in two dimensions have important analogs in the "physical dimensions," three and four. Professor Witten's explanation of the Jones polynomial involved ingredients similar to ideas of Professor Frank Wilczek about fractional statistics particles in 2 + 1 dimensions. The realization of this led to a collaboration of Wilczek and Witten [with Yi-Hong Chen and Bert Halperin] on theories of high— temperature super- conductivity. 53 Institute for advanced study MEMBERS, VISITORS AND RESEARCH STAFF Academic V«ir 1987-88 GREGORY ATHANASIU Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford, California Particle physics JOSEPH ATICK Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford, California Particle physics JOSHUA BARNES Princeton, New Jersey Astrophysics JULIAN BIGELOW Princeton, New Jersey Applied mathematics, experimental physics and electronic computers ■ m JAMES BINNEY University of Oxford, United Kingdom Astrophysics ■ vs LEOBUTZ University of Maryland, College Park Astrophysics STEVEN CARLIP University of Texas, Austin Particle physics GERALD CECIL Princeton, New Jersey Astrophysics TA-PH CHENG University of Missouri, St. Louis Particle physics ARNONDAR Technion — Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel Astrophysics • VF ASHOK DAS University of Rochester, Rochester, New York Particle physics HERWIG DEJONGHE Princeton, New Jersey Astrophysics STAN DESER Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts Particle physics • vs MICHAEL DINE City College of New York, New York City Particle physics EWINE VAN DISHOECK Princeton University Astrophysics ■ v REBECCA ELSON Princeton, New Jersey Astrophysics YOSHIHARU ERIGUCHI University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan Astrophysics • VF KEN FREEMAN Mt.

Under Professor] JOAN WALLACH SCOTT MICHAEL WALZER [UPS Foundation Professor] Professor Emeritus ALBERT O. HIRSCHMAN THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE Academic Activities of the School and its Faculty Academic Years 1987-88 and 1988-89 At the beginning of the period covered by this report the School of Social Sci- ence embarked on a three-year program that was devised to emphasize various aspects of group identity. The focus for the academic year 1987-88 was "Gender and the Different Mean- ings and Uses of Ideas of Male and Female." A group composed of permanent faculty, visiting members and guests met every other week to discuss theoretical and practical approaches to the study of gender-related issues. In addition, a roundtable on "Life and Death in Sexuality," flinded by the Ford Foundation and sponsored jointly by the Institute and Brown University's Pem- broke Center, took place in Princeton in May. A conference on "Women's Studies Research: Critical Issues Past, Present and Future" was held in June with the support of a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. In 1987-88 the School had a total of 22 members, visitors and research assistants. The thematic focus of the School's regular seminar in the academic year 1988-89 was "Political Revival of Ethnicity and Religion." In this year the School's members, visitors and research assistants totalled 20. During the two years covered by this report clifforx) geertz published a num- ber of articles, including a National Academy of Science memorial to Margaret Mead. His book. Works and Lives: The Anthropologist as Author, won the National Book Critics Circle Award for criticism in 1988. He began work on a book that reflects on his four decades of work in Indonesia and Morocco and started prepar- ing the Harvard-Jerusalem Lectures that will be given in Jerusalem in May 1990. JOAN SCOTT'S book, Gender and the Politics of History, appeared in 1988. It was awarded the Joan Kelly prize for women's history/feminist theory of the Ameri- can Historical Association in 1989. In 1988 and 1989 she published several arti- cles on a variety of topics having to do with changes in women's roles in society. In 1988-89 she delivered papers at the annual meetings of the American Histori- cal Association and of the Society for French Historical Studies. She lectured at Princeton, Brown, Cornell, Wesleyan, Rutgers and Harvard and at the Universi- ties of Amsterdam, Utrecht, Stockholm and Copenhagen. She was on the facul- ty of a session of the Salzburg Seminar for American Studies. She received an honorary degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. 59 Institute for advanced study MICHAEL WALZER'S book, The Company of Critics: Social Criticism and Political Commit- ment in the Twentieth Century, was published in 1988. In the period covered by diis report two of his earlier books, Tlw Revolution oftlie Saints and Regidde and Resolution, appeared in French translation, and an Italian edition of Spheres of Justice was pub- lished. He worked on a number of papers dealing with the possibilities of objectivity in ethics. In 1987-88 he contributed to a British television program on the meaning of "evil" in contemporary life. He lectured at Rutgers, Johns Hopkins, Brandeis, Brooklyn College, Brooklyn Polytechnic, Queens College, the New School for Social Research and the University of New Orleans and presented a paper at a con- ference in Helsinki on "the quality of life." In 1988—89 he spoke about "Two Kinds of Moral Universalism" at a Mellon Colloquium at Princeton University and pre- sented the Tanner Lectures at the University of Oxford. In the academic years 1987-88 and 1988-89 Professor Emeritus albert o. HIRSCHMAN published articles on economic issues in Latin America, on general economic history and theory and on conservative ideologies and rhetoric in the 19th and 20th centuries. An article that was published in The Atlantic in May 1989 picked up themes explored in earlier lectures in Ann Arbor, Paris and Munich. One of his books. Getting Ahead Collectively, appeared in Portuguese translation. Volumes containing selections from his writings were published in Italy and Germany. He served as a member of the Executive Panel on Social Welfare organized by the Ford Foundation and on the Twentieth Century Fund's Task Force on International Debt. He received honorary degrees from universities in Paris, Berlin, Turin and New York. 60 THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE MEMBERS, VISITORS AND RESEARCH STAFF Academic Year 1987-88 LILA ABU-LUGHOD Williams College, Williamstoum, Massachusetls Anthropology: Feminist theory and Middle East ethnology YITZHAK BRUDNY Princeton University Contemporary Russian political thought • A JUDITH BUTLER George Washington University, Washington, DC Gender, identity and desire: foundations of philosophical feminism JEAN-PAUL DUMONT University of Washington , Seattle Toward an anthropological understanding of insularity CHRISTINE HSENBERG University of Bielefeld, Federal Republic of Germany Sports and the middle classes: a comparative study of England and Germany, 1890-1936 ABDURRAMANE EL-MOUDDEN Princeton University Near Eastern studies ■ A YASMINE ERGAS Social Science Research Council, Neu' York City Equality and differences in contemporary pohtics as viewed through the feminisms of the U.S. and Italy STEFANO FENOALTEA Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, Pennsylvania Transaction cost analysis of socio-economic institutions JOSEPH FRANK Stanford University, Stanford, California Biography of Dostoyevsky • VF DAVID GORDON New School for Social Research, New York City Importance of institutional linkages between power relations and macro-economic outcomes DONNA HARAWAY University of California, Santa Cruz Cultural and historical studies of science; feminist theory ISTVAN HONT Columbia University, New York City International poHtical economy and distributive justice theory and their histories G.

The library is strongest in classical studies, ancient history and archaeology, but it con- tains basic document collections, reference works and important secondary works of scholarship in most fields of history and the social sciences. The journal collection is extensive, and fairly complete back runs exist to the founding of the Institute. The library has occupied its present building since 1964. The Institute's rare book collection, the gift of LessingJ. Rosenwald, consists of about 2,000 volumes on the history of science and was compiled by Herbert M. Evans in the 1930s. The collection, which is housed in a special room, includes numerous first editions of important scientific works in mathematics, astronomy, physics and the life sciences. The Library has an extensive offprint collection that includes offprints received by Professors Kurt Godel, Ernst H. Kantorowicz, Elias Avery Lowe, Millard Meiss and Erwin Panofsky and former visiting member Walther Kirchner. The microfilm collections of the Library include a large selection from Manuscripta, a collection of several thousand fifteenth- to nineteenth-century printed books fi-om the Vatican Library. The Bavarian Academy has given the Institute a microfilm copy of slips prepared for the Tlusaurus Linguae Latinae. The Library has microfilm copies of the papers of Albert Einstein, Kurt Godel and Simone Weil. The Historical Studies - Social Science Library houses the Institute Archives. The papers in the collection date from the 1930s and include official correspon- dence of the Director's Office, minutes of meetings of the Faculty and the Board of Trustees, miscellaneous correspondence concerning past Faculty members, records of the Electronic Computer Project and other documents. The Archives also include the Institute's extensive photograph collection. The Mathematics - Natural Sciences Library [Momota Ganguli, Librarian] is located on the second floor of Fuld Hall. Its collection of older journals and books is housed in compact shelving on the lower level of the Historical Studies - Social Science Library. Reprints of former members of the School of Natural Sciences are kept in Buildings D and E. The Mathematics - Natural Sciences Library contains about 30,000 volumes [including bound periodicals and monographs] and has subscriptions to approxi- mately 1 90 journals. The areas covered by this collection are pure and applied mathematics, astrophysics and theoretical, particle and mathematical physics. THE LIBRARIES Both of the Institute's libraries participate in the shared cataloguing system of the Research Libraries Group, which gives Institute scholars computerized access to a database that contains more than fourteen million records. Searches of this database retrieve bibliographic information and identify the location of materials in all participating libraries. Scholars who use the Historical Studies - Social Science Library can also conduct computerized searches in the Avery Art Index, the Eighteenth Century Short Title Catalogue and such indexes as Art Index, Humanities Index and the Social Science Index. All scholars affiliated with the Institute enjoy the same privileges as Princeton University faculty in the Harvey S. Firestone Memorial Library and the nineteen special-subject libraries in the Princeton University Library System and also in the Robert E. Speer Library of the Princeton Theological Seminary. Both Librarians and the Faculties and visiting scholars of all four Schools at the Institute warmly appreciate gifts, too numerous to mention here, of books and articles from former permanent and visiting members of the Institute community. 65 RECORD OF EVENTS Ac\ulcnin Year 1987-88 What follows is a calendar of events sponsored by the Schools of Historical Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Social Science and by the Director's Office September 1 5 Astrophysics Seminar Luncheon ■ n J.
