  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 [  
]  "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.

  The Role of Copyright in a Digital Era
