About Edward Witten, Fields Medal, 1990
Edward Witten (born August 26, 1951) is an American theoretical physicist with a focus on mathematical physics who is currently the Professor of Mathematical Physics at the Institute for Advanced Study. He is regarded by many of his peers as one of the greatest living physicists, perhaps even a successor to Albert Einstein. In 1990 he was awarded a Fields Medal by the International Union of Mathematics, which is the highest honor in mathematics and often regarded as the Nobel Prize equivalent for mathematics. He is the only physicist to have received this honor.
Witten is a leading researcher in superstring theory, a theory of quantum gravity, supersymmetric quantum field theories and other areas of mathematical physics. He has also made seminal contributions in mathematics and helped bridge gaps between fundamental physics and various areas of mathematics.
