Amie Wilkinson (born 1968) is an American mathematician working in ergodic theory and smooth dynamical systems. She is a professor at the University of Chicago.

Biography[edit]

She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University in 1989 and a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 1995 under the direction of Charles C. Pugh.[1] She is currently a professor of mathematics at the University of Chicago. She is married to Benson Farb, who is also a professor in the same department.[2]

Work[edit]

Wilkinson's work focuses on the geometric and statistical properties of diffeomorphisms and flows with a particular emphasis on stable ergodicity and partial hyperbolicity. In a series of papers with Christian Bonatti and Sylvain Crovisier, Wilkinson studied centralizers of diffeomorphisms[3][4] settling the C1 case of the twelfth problem on Stephen Smale's list of mathematical problems for the 21st Century.[5]

Awards[edit]

Wilkinson was the recipient of the 2011 Satter Prize in Mathematics,[1] in part for her work with Keith Burns on stable ergodicity of partially hyperbolic systems.[6]

She gave an invited talk, "Dynamical Systems and Ordinary Differential Equations", in the International Congress of Mathematicians 2010 in Hyderabad, India.[7]

In 2013 she became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society, for "contributions to dynamical systems".[8] In 2019 she was elected to the Academia Europaea.[9] In 2020 she received the Levi L. Conant Prize of the AMS.[10] She was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2021.[11]
