Iranian mathematician receives Order of Academic Palms

TEHRAN, Sep. 28 (MNA) – The Iranian professor of mathematics at the University of Tehran, Siamak Yassemi, has been titled Chevalier of the Order of Academic Palms (Ordre des Palmes académiques) by the French Republic.

A member of the Academy of Sciences of Iran, he has also received the COMSTECH International Award, and the 22nd Khwarizmi International Award in Basic Science among others.

He was recently elected by the World Academy of Sciences as a fellow member. That makes him the first Iranian mathematician who has ever been a member of TWAS.
