IAS

An article on the search for a new director of the Institute for Advanced Study discusses the changing nature of the institute.

The faculty member in computer science mentioned in the article is complexity theorist Avi Wigderson. It was a coup for complexity and all of computer science when he was appointed a faculty member in 1999. With a large collection of postdocs, visitors and students he has made the institute quite an exciting place for theoretical computer science and discrete math.
