**Arthur Leonard Rubin** (born 1956)^{[citation needed]} is an American mathematician and aerospace engineer. He was named a Putnam Fellow on four consecutive occasions from 1970 to 1973.

## Life and career[edit | edit source]

Rubin's mother was Jean E. Rubin, a professor of mathematics at Purdue University, and his father was Herman Rubin, a professor of statistics at the same university.^{[1]} Arthur co-authored his first paper with his mother in 1969 at the age of 13.^{[2]} He earned his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Technology in 1978, under the direction of Alexander S. Kechris.^{[3]}

Rubin unsuccessfully stood as a Libertarian to represent the 55th district in the 1984 California State Assembly elections.^{[4]}

## Awards and honors[edit | edit source]

As an undergraduate, Rubin was named a Putnam Fellow on four occasions, the first time in 1970, aged 14, making him the youngest Fellow to date.^{[5]}^{[6]}^{[7]} In 1972, he tied for third place in the first USA Mathematical Olympiad.^{[8]}

In 1974, Rubin was the subject of an article in the *Madison Capital Times*, in which his Caltech undergraduate advisor was quoted as saying that someone of Rubin's ability appeared in the United States "about once in every ten years".^{[9]}

## Publications[edit | edit source]

Rubin's dissertation was entitled *Free Algebras in Von Neumann–Bernays–Gödel Set Theory and Positive Elementary Inductions in Reasonable Structures*.^{[3]}^{[10]} In 1979, Rubin co-authored a paper on list coloring of graphs with Paul Erdős, giving him an Erdős number of 1.^{[11]}
