Michael Thoreau Lacey was born in 1959 and has been a professor of pure mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology since 1996. He has shown growing interests in harmonic analysis and probability.
Lacey was mentored by the famous Walter Philipp in his endeavors and studies to earn a Ph.D. at the University of Illinois in 1987. As to coincidence with his interests, his thesis was on probability using Stefan Banach’s spaces. Banach’s spaces are used as a mathematical function and taken to be the absolute normed vector space.
While teaching at Indiana University Michael Lacey received a postdoctoral fellowship associated with his research work in mathematics, from the National Science Foundation
His interests in mathematics have led Lacey to engage in solving mathematical problems and challenges in the field of probability. For example, he solved the iterated logarithm that is commonly used in empirical traits of probability functions.
The iterated logarithm is crucial in probability as it is the one that mathematicians use to show the variance of a random walk. Moreover, working together as a team with his mentor and Ph.D. instructor, Walter Philipp, they studied the mathematical possibilities which were empirical enough showing the high chances of a perfect central limit theorem.
Michael Lacey’s interests in harmonic analysis and probability can be traced and be said to have been influenced by the good performance he had when still school. He also has interests in the ergodic theory, which forms a part of his works.
Due to his excellence in mathematics and research, Lacey has taught in a number of institutions key among them the University of North Carolina as well as Louisiana State University.
Michael Lacy efforts have led to him being recognized for professionalism in the field of mathematics through his endeavors to advance knowledge in this field. He has conducted several kinds of research in collaboration with other mathematicians a fact that has earned him several awards.
For instance, In 1996, Lacy together with Christoph Thiele, they proved the bilinear Hilbert transform study by Alberto Calderon that was yet subject to proof. In recognition of their efforts, they were awarded the Salem Prize. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Mathalliance
Furthermore, while working together, they received the Guggenheim Fellowship by Georgia Institute of Technology for their research efforts and disciplinary works in mathematics.
He is also a member of the American Mathematical Society, which is a research and education society of dedicated mathematicians and experts in mathematics.
