Portrait of Robert J. Aumann

Robert J. Aumann is The City College of New York’s ninth Nobel Prize winner, sharing the 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics with Thomas C. Schelling "for having enhanced our understanding of conflict and cooperation through game-theory analysis."

He graduated from City College in 1950 with a B.Sc. degree in mathematics and received his S.M. (1952) and Ph.D. (1955) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
