Agmon's contributions to partial differential equations include Agmon's method for proving exponential decay of eigenfunctions for elliptic operators.


Agmon was awarded the 1991 Israel Prize in mathematics. He received the 2007 EMET Prize "for paving new paths in the study of partial-elliptical differential equations and their problematic language and for advancing the knowledge in the field, as well as his essential contribution to the development of the Spectral Theory and the Distribution Theory of Schrödinger Operators." He has also received the Weizmann Prize and the Rothschild Prize. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.
