Ciprian Ilie Foiaș (born 20 July 1933) is a Romanian mathematician. He was awarded the Norbert Wiener Prize in Applied Mathematics in 1995, for his contributions in operator theory.

Education and career[edit]

Born in Reșița, Romania, Foias received his doctorate from the University of Bucharest in 1962, under supervision of Miron Nicolescu. He taught at his alma mater (1966–1979), Paris-Sud 11 University (1979–1983), and Indiana University (1983 until retirement). Since 2000, he has been teaching and doing research at Texas A&M University, where he is a Distinguished Professor.

The Foias constant is named after him. Foias is listed as an ISI highly cited researcher.[1]
