Professor Isaak Mayergoyz receives 2010 IEEE Magnetics Society Achievement Award “for seminal contributions to the analysis of electromagnetic fields and nonlinear magnetization dynamics, hysteresis modeling, and service to the IEEE Magnetics Society.”
Professor Isaak Mayergoyz is a world authority on Preisach modeling of hysteretic magnetic and superconducting. Materials, and is a recognized expert in the study of eddy currents and skin effects in ferromagnets. He has also made contributions in the application of magnetostatics, time-dependent magnetic fields, finite-element and boundary-element calculations, and computational micromagnetics to various fields of engineering He has authored or coauthored twelve books; notable among them are Mathematical Models of Hysteresis (1990), Spin-Stand Microscopy of Hard Disk Data, (2007) and Nonlinear Magnetization Dynamics in Nanosystems (2009). He has published more than 350 scientific papers.
Professor Mayergoyz received his Master and Ph.D. degrees in the former Soviet Union where he worked as a senior research scientist in the Institute of Cybernetics of Ukranian Academy of Sciences before his emigration to the United States. In 1980 he became a full professor of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of University of Maryland, College Park, where he helped establish and maintain the electric power engineering curriculum and educational program in the ECE Department. He has mentored more than 30 Ph.D. students and post doctoral fellows. He is a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher of University of Maryland, College Park (1994) and a recipient of Outstanding Teacher Award of College of Engineering (1987). He was a visiting research fellow of the Research and Develop ment Center of General Electric Company, where he also served as a consultant. He was the editor of the Academic Press-Elsevier Electromagnetism series.
Professor Mayergoyz has served the IEEE Magnetics Society in many capacities. He has been a Distinguished Lecturer, Chair of the Distinguished Lecturer committee, Program Chair for several Conference on Magnetic Field Computation meetings, program committee participant for more than a dozen MMM and Intermag conferences, member of the Administrative Committee and editor of the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. He is a fellow of the IEEE.
