Anthony W. Knapp

Anthony W. Knapp (born 2 December 1941, Morristown, New Jersey)[1] is an American mathematician at the State University of New York, Stony Brook working on representation theory, who classified the tempered representations of a semisimple Lie group.

He won the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition in 1997.[2] In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[3]
