UNH Math Professor Receives 2014 MacArthur Award After Prime Number Discovery
Yitang Zhang, professor of analytic number theory at the University of New Hampshire, has been named a 2014 MacArthur Fellow.
Zhang was unknown to the research community until last year, when he rose to celebrity after establishing a finite bound on gaps between prime numbers. He was recently promoted to full professor, having worked as a lecturer at UNH since 1999.
