Jeffry Ned Kahn is a professor of mathematics at
Rutgers University notable for his work in
Kahn received his Ph.D. from
Ohio State University in 1979 after completing his dissertation under his advisor
Dijen K. Ray-Chaudhuri.
In 1980 he showed the importance of the
bundle theorem for ovoidal
 In 1993, together with
Gil Kalai, he disproved
 In 1996 he was awarded the
Pólya Prize (SIAM).
Awards and honors
He was an invited speaker at the 1994
International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich.
In 2012, he was awarded the
Fulkerson Prize (jointly with Anders Johansson and
Van H. Vu) for determining the threshold of edge density above which a
random graph can be covered by disjoint copies of a given smaller graph.
 Also in 2012, he became a fellow of the
American Mathematical Society.
