Martin Shubik

Martin Shubik, the Seymour H. Knox Professor Emeritus of Mathematical Institutional Economics, died on Wednesday, August 22, 2018. 

A member of the Yale faculty since 1963 and a founding member of the Yale SOM faculty, Professor Shubik was a specialist in strategic analysis, the economics of corporate competition, and the study of financial institutions.

“At this time of the passing of Professor Martin Shubik—one of Yale SOM’s most accomplished faculty members and a superbly accomplished contributor to the fields of mathematics and economics—we offer our deepest sympathies to his family and large numbers of friends and colleagues,” said Dean Edward A. Snyder. 

We will post a fuller appreciation of Professor Shubik’s life and career in this space in the coming days.

A memorial service will be planned in the future. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Inclusion Body Myositis Registry at Yale.
