## Biography

Alain A. Lewis (born 1947) is an American mathematician. A student of the mathematical economist Kenneth Arrow, Lewis is credited by the historian of economics Philip Mirowski with making Arrow aware of computational limits to economic agency.

## Life

Lewis gained his BA in philosophy, economics and statistics from George Washington University in 1969, and a PhD in applied mathematics from Harvard University in 1979. He was based at Lawrence Livermore Labs from 1978 to 1979, RAND from 1979 to 1982, the University of Singapore from 1981 to 1983, Cornell University from 1983 to 1987 and University of California, Irvine from 1987.
