2006 - Steele Prize for Seminal Contribution to Research

1994 - John von Neumann Lecturer

1993 - US President's National Medal of Science "For his influence as a leader in nonlinear science for more than two decades as the principal architect of the theory of soliton solutions of nonlinear equations of evolution.", Presented by President Clinton and Vice President Gore at a ceremony on the White House South Lawn, September 30, 1993.

1980 - Member of the National Academy of Sciences

- General relativity
- Kerr metric
- Schwarzschild metric

His research brings together the fields of Toroid and Plasma. His research on Toroid often connects related topics like Nuclear physics. He performs integrative study on Nuclear physics and Plasma in his works. Much of his study explores Mathematical physics relationship to Deriving the Schwarzschild solution. Deriving the Schwarzschild solution is frequently linked to Gravitation in his study. With his scientific publications, his incorporates both Gravitation and General relativity. Martin D. Kruskal connects General relativity with Schwarzschild geodesics in his research. Schwarzschild geodesics is often connected to Theoretical physics in his work. He connects Theoretical physics with Mathematical physics in his study.

- Interaction of "Solitons" in a Collisionless Plasma and the Recurrence of Initial States (3210 citations)
- Maximal Extension of Schwarzschild Metric (712 citations)
- Equilibrium of a Magnetically Confined Plasma in a Toroid (411 citations)

His work on Nuclear physics as part of general Plasma study is frequently linked to Mechanics, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Nuclear physics and Plasma through his research. His study on Mathematical analysis is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Singularity and Differential equation. He integrates Differential equation and Mathematical analysis in his research. While working on this project, he studies both Classical mechanics and Mathematical physics. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Mathematical physics and Classical mechanics through his research. His study ties his expertise on Nonlinear system together with the subject of Quantum mechanics. Martin D. Kruskal applies his multidisciplinary studies on Pure mathematics and Applied mathematics in his research. In his works, Martin D. Kruskal performs multidisciplinary study on Applied mathematics and Pure mathematics.
