János Komlós (mathematician)

János Komlós (Budapest, 23 May 1942) is a Hungarian-American mathematician, working in probability theory and discrete mathematics. He has been a professor of mathematics at Rutgers University[1] since 1988. He graduated from the Eötvös Loránd University, then became a fellow at the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Between 19841988 he worked at the University of California, San Diego.[2]

Notable results

  • The same team of authors developed the optimal Ajtai–Komlós–Szemerédi sorting network.[4]
  • Komlós and Szemerédi proved that if G is a random graph on n vertices with
edges, where c is a fixed real number, then the probability that G has a Hamiltonian circuit converges to

Degrees, awards

Komlós received his Ph.D. in 1967 from Eötvös Loránd University under the supervision of Alfréd Rényi.[12] In 1975 he received the Alfréd Rényi Prize, a prize established for researchers of the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics. In 1998 he was elected as an external member to the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.[13]
