Position

Distinguished Professor of Physics at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of New York at Stony Brook,

Co-discoverer of the integrable chiral Potts model.

Research interests

statistical mechanics of the Ising model including boundary critical phenomena, randomly layered systems which have Griffiths-McCoy singularities, the Painleve representation of the two point function, quadratic difference equations for the n-point functions, and the Ising model in a magnetic field. Dr. McCoy has in addition made contributions to the study of quantum spin chains, and the Fermionic representations of conformal field theory, and has been a co-discoverer of the integrable chiral Potts model. He has also worked extensively in quantum field theory and more recently has become known for his mathematical work in nonlinear differential equations and the theory of Rogers-Ramanujan identities.

Prizes and awards

1999 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics for his pioneering work on integrable statistical mechanical models.
