Research interests

Tudor Ratiu has worked in integrable systems, sympletic geometry, Hamiltonian dynamics and the bifurcation theory of conservative systems in the presence of symmetry, especially their link to singular reduction and the properties of the momentum map.

Prizes and awards

His contribution to mathematics was recognized by numerous awards and prizes. Among other honors, he was an A. P. Sloan Foundation Fellow in 1984-1987, a Humbold Prize winner in 1997, and won a Ferran Sunyer and Balaguer Prize for the year 2000.
