2016 - Member of the National Academy of Sciences
2012 - ACM Athena Lecturer Award Professor Lynch's Athena Lecture was delivered at the 2013 joint meeting of the Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC) and the Symposium on Parallel Algorithms and Architectures (SPAA). PODC is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group Operating Systems (SIGOPS) and the ACM Special Interest Group on Algorithms and Computations Theory (SIGACT). SPAA is sponsored by SIGACT and the ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Architecture (SIGARCH).
2010 - Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
2001 - Member of the National Academy of Engineering For the development of theoretical foundations for distributed computing.
1997 - ACM Fellow For contributions to the theory of distributed computing, including mathematical models and proof techniques, algorithms and impossiblity results.
Theoretical computer science, Distributed computing, Automaton, Algorithm and Upper and lower bounds are her primary areas of study. Nancy Lynch has included themes like Consensus, Computation, Asynchronous system and Quantum Byzantine agreement in her Theoretical computer science study. She combines subjects such as Scheduling, Resource allocation and Asynchronous communication with her study of Distributed computing.
Her Automaton research incorporates elements of Soundness, Input/output, Simple, Relation and Hybrid system. Her Algorithm research integrates issues from Discrete mathematics and Paxos. Her work deals with themes such as Distributed algorithm, Inter-process communication, Deadlock prevention algorithms and Leader election, which intersect with Uniform consensus.
Nancy Lynch focuses on Theoretical computer science, Distributed computing, Automaton, Algorithm and Distributed algorithm. Nancy Lynch interconnects Mathematical proof, Correctness, Simple, Probabilistic logic and Consensus in the investigation of issues within Theoretical computer science. While the research belongs to areas of Distributed computing, she spends her time largely on the problem of Asynchronous communication, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Asynchronous system.
The Automaton study combines topics in areas such as Programming language, Formal verification, Hybrid system and Input/output. Her Algorithm research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Discrete mathematics and Upper and lower bounds. Her research links Leader election with Distributed algorithm.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Algorithm, Theoretical computer science, Upper and lower bounds, Wireless network and Distributed computing. Her study in Algorithm is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Message passing, Parallel computing, Atomicity, Server and Spiking neural network. Her study on Server also encompasses disciplines like
In her study, Nancy Lynch carries out multidisciplinary Theoretical computer science and Context research. Her Upper and lower bounds research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Time complexity, Discrete mathematics, Distributed algorithm and Task. Her Distributed computing study combines topics in areas such as Scalability and Communication complexity.
Wireless network, Algorithm, Upper and lower bounds, Theoretical computer science and Graph are her primary areas of study. Her Algorithm study also includes
Her Theoretical computer science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Multiplicative function, Input/output and Set. She undertakes multidisciplinary studies into Population density and Distributed computing in her work. The study incorporates disciplines such as Key distribution in wireless sensor networks, Communication complexity and Network topology in addition to Distributed computing.
