Dr. Roger E. Howe Biography

Dr. Roger Howe

Dr. Roger Howe, TIAS Fellow
William Kenan, Jr. Professor of Mathematics
Yale University

Dr. Roger E. Howe is the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Mathematics at Yale University, where his work focuses on representation theory and other applications of symmetry, including harmonic analysis, automorphic forms, and invariant theory. He first introduced the concept of the reductive dual pair—often referred to as a “Howe pair”—in a preprint during the 1970s and a formal paper in 1989. This and other significant contributions to mathematics earned him a membership in the National Academy of Sciences in 1994. He is also a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

As a teacher, Howe has championed national initiatives to advance math education, serving on several prominent national panels and committees. In 1997, Yale presented him with the Yale College/Dylan Hixon ’88 Prize for Teaching Excellence in the National Sciences. In 2006, he received the American Mathematical Society Award for Distinguished Public Service for his ‘multifaceted contributions to mathematics education.” He became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society in 2012.

Dr. Howe did his undergraduate work at Harvard University, winning the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition in 1964. He was awarded the Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley in 1969. He joined the Yale faculty in 1974, serving as the mathematics department’s director of graduate studies in 1982-83 and 1986-87, and as department chair from 1992-95. As a TIAS Fellow, he will collaborate with faculty and students in the College of Education & Human Development’s Department of Teaching, Learning & Culture.

R.J.Q. Adams received the Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1972 and joined the A&M History Department in 1974. His professional interest is the history of Britain in the 20th century. He became professor of history in 1987, and from 2001 until 2004 was Claudius M. Easley, Jr., Faculty Research Fellow in Liberal Arts. In 2004 he was named Patricia and Bookman Peters Professor of History and in 2009 University Distinguished Professor.

Professor Adams teaches graduate and undergraduate classes in modern British history, and since 1993 he has directed nineteen M.A. and fourteen Ph.D. students to completion of their degrees.  He currently chairs five doctoral committees.

Widely published here and abroad, among Professor Adams’s recent books are:  Europe, Crisis and Conflict: 1890-1945  (New York and London: Oxford University Press, 2003); Bonar Law (London, John Murray; Stanford, CA, Stanford University Press 1999 and 2013); British Politics and Foreign Policy in the Age of Appeasement, 1935 -39 (London, Macmillan Ltd.; Stanford, CA., Stanford University Press, 1993 and 2014) and Balfour: The Last Grandee (London, John Murray, 2007 and 2014).   He is currently working on a study of the reign of King George V.
