Martin D. Davis won the Leroy P. Steele Prize, Chauvenet Prize, and the Lester R. Ford Award for his work on Hilbert's tenth problem. In 2012, he was selected as one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society. He took courses under Bennington Gill and cites Emil L Post, another City College alumni, as one of his biggest influences.

He graduated from City College (1948) with a B.S. degree in mathematics and received his Ph.D. from Princeton (1950).
