Frum Nobel Prize Winner

Prof. Robert J. (Yisrael) Aumann of Hebrew University was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for his research in game theory (link). He's not just an Israeli-American, but he is also Orthodox and has written on mathematical issues in the Talmud (as reported in Ha'aretz). I'm sure I saw somewhere that his brother-in-law was the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Sha'alvim (UPDATE: Here's where I saw it).

There is an extensive interview with Prof. Aumann available on the Hebrew U website (link).
