Notable results[edit]


Bárány received the Mathematical Prize (now Paul Erdős Prize) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1985. He was an invited speaker at the Combinatorics session of the International Congress of Mathematicians, in Beijing, 2002.[4] He was elected a corresponding member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (2010). In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[5]

He is an Editorial Board member for the journals Combinatorica,[6] Mathematika,[7] and the Online Journal of Analytic Combinatorics".[8] He is area editor of the journal Mathematics of Operations Research.[9]
