Robert Steinberg (May 25, 1922 – May 25, 2014) was a mathematician at the University of California, Los Angeles who introduced the Steinberg representation, the Lang–Steinberg theorem, the Steinberg group in algebraic K-theory, Steinberg's formula in representation theory, and the Steinberg groups in Lie theory that yield finite simple groups over finite fields. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Toronto in 1948.
Steinberg was born in Soroki, Bessarabia, Romania (present-day Soroca, Moldavia).
I have had a good life.
He was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1966, won the Steele Prize in 1985, was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1985, and won the Jeffery–Williams Prize in 1990. He retired from UCLA in 1992. In 2003 the Journal of Algebra published a special issue to celebrate Robert Steinberg's 80th birthday. He died on May 25, 2014, his 92nd birthday.^{[1]}
