2013 - Fellow of the American Mathematical Society

1996 - Wolf Prize in Mathematics for his profound and innovative contributions, in particular to electromagnetic, optical, and acoustic wave propagation and to fluid, solid, quantum and statistical mechanics.

1988 - US President's National Medal of Science "For his outstanding contribution to the geometrical theory of diffraction. This is a major extension of geometrical optics which succeeds, after many centuries, in adding the physics of diffraction to the simple ray concepts of optics and of other wave motions.", Presented by President Reagan in a White House ceremony on July 15, 1988.

Mathematical analysis, Boundary value problem, Mixed boundary condition, Robin boundary condition and Optics are his primary areas of study. His Mathematical analysis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Method of fundamental solutions, Wigner distribution function and Random media. His Boundary value problem research incorporates themes from Term and Mathematical economics.

His research in Mixed boundary condition tackles topics such as Neumann boundary condition which are related to areas like Singular boundary method, Free boundary problem, Isotropy and Wave equation. His study in Optics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Conservative vector field, Rectification and Bubble. The study incorporates disciplines such as Wave propagation and Mechanics in addition to Boussinesq approximation.
