Dramatic Progress in "Prime Gaps"
James Maynard , a postdoctoral researcher at the University of
Montreal, has shown that there are an infinite number of successive
prime numbers that differ by no more than 600 [
http://www.ams.org/news?news_id=2076 ] . This is an improvement on a
result proved by Yitang Zhang , University of New Hampshire, that
came to light this May, which showed that the gap was no more than 70
million. Zhang was the first to put a finite bound on such gaps. This
summer a Polymath project initiated by Terence Tao , UCLA, had
reduced the bound to a little less than 5,000.
Scholze Awarded 2013 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize
Peter Scholze of the University of Bonn has been awarded the 2013
SASTRA Ramanujan Prize [
http://www.sastra.edu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2879&Itemid=1
] "for his pathbreaking contributions that lie at the interface of
arithmetic algebraic geometry and the theory of automorphic forms, and
especially in the area of Galois representations." The prize is
awarded annually for outstanding contributions by young mathematicians
to areas influenced by the work of Srinivasa Ramanujan.
2013 Fermat Prize Awarded to de Lellis and Hairer
The Fermat Prize [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermat_Prize ]
awarded once every two years by the Institut de Mathématiques de
Toulouse has been awarded jointly in 2013 to Camillo De Lellis for
his fundamental contributions (in collaboration with László
Székelyhidi) to the conjecture of Onsager about dissipative solutions
of the Euler-equations and for his work to the regularity of minimal
surfaces; and to Martin Hairer for his contributions to the analysis
of stochastic partial differential equations, especially for the
regularity of their solutions and convergence to the equilibrium.
