Cambridge authors win prestigious mathematics awards
Cambridge University Press (the Press) would like to congratulate the IMU award winners at the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro.
Caucher Birkar, Alessio Figalli, Peter Scholze and Akshay Venkatesh were winners of the 2018 Fields Medal, the most prestigious award in mathematics. The Fields Medal, likened to a Nobel Prize of Mathematics, is awarded every four years to mathematicians under 40 years of age in recognition of their outstanding mathematical achievements for existing work and for the promise of future achievements.
Masaki Kashiwara also received the Chern Medal for his outstanding and foundational contributions to algebraic analysis and representation theory sustained over a period of almost 50 years. The Chern Medal is the highest recognition awarded for outstanding achievements in the field of mathematics.
The Press has made a collection of journal papers and book chapters, written by these leading authors in the field of mathematics, free to read online throughout August.
Ella Colvin, Director of Publishing at the Press, said: ‘Many congratulations to our authors on being awarded these prestigious prizes and for their exceptional contributions to advancements in mathematics.
‘As a leading academic publisher, we’re committed to supporting excellence in research. We’re proud of the investment made in the mathematics community, including the launch of the Forum of Mathematics, Sigma and Pi journals. Our focus and commitment has allowed high-quality output to be nurtured and published from the best researchers in the field.’
You can access the article collection for free here.
