Noam David Elkies (born August 25, 1966) is an American mathematician and chess master.

At age 15, Elkies received a gold medal with a perfect score (one of the 26 participants with the score of 42) at the 22nd, 1982, International Mathematical Olympiad,[1] the youngest ever to do so. Elkies graduated from Stuyvesant High School in 1982[2] and went on to Columbia University, where he won the Putnam competition at the age of sixteen years and four months, making him one of the youngest Putnam Fellows in history.[3] He was a Putnam Fellow two more times during his undergraduate years. After graduating as valedictorian at age 18, summa in Mathematics and Music, he earned his Ph.D., at age 20, under supervision of Benedict Gross and Barry Mazur at Harvard University.[4]

In 1987, he proved that an elliptic curve over the rational numbers is supersingular at infinitely many primes. In 1988, he found a counterexample to Euler's sum of powers conjecture for fourth powers.[5]

His work on these and other problems won him recognition and a position as an associate professor at Harvard in 1990.[2] In 1993, he was made a full, tenured professor at the age of 26. This made him the youngest full professor in the history of Harvard, surpassing previous then-youngest professors Alan Dershowitz, William H. Press, and Lawrence Summers (who were each made full professors at age 28).[6]

Elkies, along with A. O. L. Atkin, extended Schoof's algorithm to create the Schoof–Elkies–Atkin algorithm.

He is an accomplished composer and solver of chess problems (winning the 1996 World Chess Solving Championship) and musical compositions. He has discovered many new patterns in Conway's Game of Life[7] and has studied the mathematics of still life patterns in that cellular automaton rule.[8]

Elkies is also renowned for his knowledge of the connections between mathematics and music. He sits on the Advisory Board of the Journal of Mathematics and Music.[9]

Elkies is also a fellow at Harvard's Lowell House.[10] He is a faculty adviser to the Harvard Israel Review.[11]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
