Congratulations to Professor Ranko Richert, who was the recipient in June and July of a 2018 Gauss Professorship from the University of Göttingen, Germany. The Gauss Professorship was established to commemorate the achievements of the famous German mathematician and scientist Carl Friedrich Gauss, on the 100th anniversary of his death, and is awarded to scientists who have made outstanding contributions in one of Gauss's primary fields of interest: astronomy, geophysics, mathematics, and physics. Gauss Professors are invited to give lectures and seminars in an effort to cultivate the exchange of scientific ideas. Professor Richert spent several weeks in Göttingen where he collaborated with Professor Konrad Samwer.
