His contributions to mathematical physics include:

  • Mathematical foundations of rational 2-dimensional CFTs with G Moore
  • Discovery of some of the first examples of "Seiberg Duals", numerous and ever growing disparate theories that are dynamically equivalent to another at low energy
  • papers from the early 1990s about the application of holomorphy to calculations in gauge theories with supersymmetry, including a solution of N=1 four-dimensional gauge theories such as SQCD He later used renormalization group methods to obtain a 3d Seiberg dual for his 4D SQCD
  • articles about the strong-weak duality S-duality in the context of supersymmetric gauge theories
  • papers about the complete solution of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in four and three dimensions
  • a paper on Matrix theory and M theory in the discrete Light-Cone Quantization
  • his and Edward Witten's analysis of the appearance of non-commutative geometry in theories containing open strings, and an identification of a low energy limit of open string dynamics as a noncommutative quantum field theory
  • OM-theory with Andrew Strominger and Shiraz Minwalla
  • In recent years, partly with Witten, T Senthil and others, results in Chern-Simons theories and non-supersymmetric field theory dualities of high relevance to condensed matter theory

Honors and awards

He was recipient of a 1996 MacArthur Fellowship[1] and the Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics in 1998[2] In July 2012, he was an inaugural awardee of the Fundamental Physics Prize, the creation of physicist and internet entrepreneur, Yuri Milner[3] In 2016, he was awarded the Dirac Medal of the ICTP
