Edward Frenkel is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, which he joined in 1997 after being on the faculty at Harvard University. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, and the winner of the Hermann Weyl Prize in mathematical physics.
In addition to his New York Times bestseller Love and Math, Frenkel has published two other books: Langlands Correspondence for Loop Groups and Vertex Algebras and Algebraic Curves (with David Ben-Zvi). He has also authored over eighty scholarly articles in academic journals, and he has lectured on his work around the world. He is a member of the Editorial Boards of four peer-reviewed mathematical journals.
Frenkel’s research focuses on various aspects of Symmetry in Mathematics and Physics. Recently, he has been exploring fascinating links between the Langlands Program and dualities in Quantum Physics. To get an idea about this work, watch his Eilenberg Lectures at Columbia University (2012) in the top video player on the left.
At UC Berkeley, Frenkel teaches both graduate and undergraduate courses. You may watch his Multivariable Calculus lectures at UC Berkeley (2009) in the bottom video player on the left.
