The 2024 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics goes to Simon Brendle for transformative contributions to differential geometry, including sharp geometric inequalities, many results on Ricci flow and mean curvature flow and the Lawson conjecture on minimal tori in the 3-sphere. The 2024 New Horizons in Mathematics Prize goes to Roland Bauerschmidt for outstanding contributions to probability … Continue reading "2024 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics"

Der Ars legendi-Fakultätenpreis Mathematik ist dieses Jahr an Prof. Dr. Claudia Kirch verliehen worden. Der Preis wird für herausragende, innovative und beispielgebende Leistungen in Lehre, Beratung und Betreuung vergeben.
The Able Prize 2023 is awarded to Luis A. Caffarelli for his seminal contributions to regularity theory for nonlinear partial differential equations including free-boundary problems and the Monge–Ampère equation.
The Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences 2022 (link) is awarded to Noga Alon and to Ehud Hrushovski for their remarkable contributions to discrete mathematics and model theory with interaction notably with algebraic geometry, topology and computer sciences.
The Abel Prize 2022 was awarded to Dennis Sullivan “for his groundbreaking contributions to topology in its broadest sense, and in particular its algebraic, geometric and dynamical aspects”.
The Wolf Prize in Mathematics 2022 is awarded to George Lusztig for “groundbreaking contributions to representation theory and related areas.” The Wolf Prize is an international award granted in Israel for “achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among people …”. Wikipedia writes further: “Until the establishment of the Abel Prize, the Wolf Prize was probably the closest equivalent of … Continue reading "Wolf Prize 2022"
The Shaw Prize 2021 in the Mathematical Sciences goes to Jean-Michel Bismut and Jeff Cheeger for their remarkable insights that have transformed, and continue to transform, modern geometry. Bismut […] imported ideas from probability into index theory, reproving all the main theorems and vastly extending them, which enabled him to link index theory to other parts … Continue reading "Shaw Prize 2021"
