Congratulations to Edward Ott and James Yorke for being selected as the 2016 Thomson Reuters Citation Laureates in Physics!

"The Citation Laureates program, begun in 2002, uses a variety of criteria, including scientific research citations, to identify the most influential researchers who are likely to win a Nobel Prize. To date, 39 researchers named Citation Laureates later won a Nobel Prize.
Ott, Grebogi and Yorke received the Thomson Reuters honor for their description of a control theory of chaotic systems that came to be known as the “OGY method,” after the order their last names appeared in their paper describing the method. That paper, which has been cited 4,087 times according to the Web of ScienceTM, was published in the journal Physical Review Letters in 1990."
