More on Jon Kleinberg’s work

Kleinberg’s combination of mathematical ability, superb taste in interesting problems, breadth of interests, and sense of strategy is both dazzling and unmatched. His work has had a fundamental impact on the effectiveness of today’s most advanced Web search engines, and his mathematical insights have had application to Internet routing, data mining, discrete optimization, and the sociology of the Web.
