Jim Simons, the prominent financier and mathematician, and his wife
Marilyn, who is president of the Simons Foundation, have announced that
the Foundation is donating US$60 million to Stony Brook University. The
gift will be used to construct and then endow the Simons Center for
Geometry and Physics on Stony Brook's main campus on Long Island. In
addition to funding the building's construction, the gift will be used
to recruit and retain faculty, provide training and support for graduate
students, support research programs, secure visiting scholars--up to 30
at a time--and sponsor workshops and conferences, among other
initiatives. The gift was announced at a press conference on February
27, 2008, at which New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer presented the
keynote speech. This is the largest gift ever presented to any of the 64
institutions in the State University of New York system. Further details
are available in the news release on the Stony Brook University web site, at
