Izak Oltman

My name is Izak Oltman. I am an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and a fourth-year math graduate student at UC Berkeley studying analysis. My advisor is Maciej Zworski.

This semester, I am co-organizing the Harmonic Analysis and Differential Equations Seminar with Zhongkai Tao.

In Fall 2022, I organized a seminar on semi-classical analysis.


  1. Particle trajectories for quantum maps (submitted) (arXiv: 2210.03224) with Yonah Borns-Weil
  2. A probabilistic Weyl-law for Berezin-Toeplitz operators (submitted) (arXiv:2207.09599)
  3. An exotic calculus of Berezin-Toeplitz operators (submitted) (arXiv:2207.09596)

Other math writing

  • Qualifying Exam Study Guide. This is a document I wrote to study for my qualifying exam that is riddled with typos and incomplete sections. It may be a helpful reference to others studying the subjects.
  • REU report on microfluidic device design completed at the University of California, Los Angeles (2018)


I passed my qualifying exam on April 12th, 2021. Here is my syllabus.

I am an officer of the Mathematics Graduate Student Association (MGSA) at UC Berkeley

I also enjoy running, hiking, climbing, and playing violin

I believe I hold the current course record for 1600m at the Hearst Mining Circle: 5:33 , 5:23, 5:00.5.
