Special issue on IMU Prizes and Medals at the ICM 2018 in Rio*
Editor: Martin Raussen, Aalborg University, Denmark
The highest point of the International Congress of Mathematicians is
the announcement of prize winners at the opening ceremony. This just
occurred on August 1, 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where the
Brazilian Minister of Education, Rossieli Soares da Silva, presented
the IMU awards (a medal and a cheque for each of the prize winners):
the Fields Medals, the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize, the Carl Friedrich Gauss
Prize, the Chern Medal, and the Leelavati Prize. The 2018 prize
winners are:
*FIELDS MEDALS* (recognizing outstanding mathematical achievement;
recipients are listed in alphabetical order of last names):
* Caucher Birkar (University of Cambridge, UK) for the proof of the
boundedness of Fano varieties and for contributions to the minimal
model program
* Alessio Figalli (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) for contributions to the
theory of optimal transport and its applications in partial
differential equations, metric geometry and probability
* Peter Scholze (Bonn University, Germany) for transforming arithmetic
algebraic geometry over
/p/adic fields through his introduction of perfectoid spaces, with
application to Galois representations, and for the development of
new cohomology theories
* Akshay Venkatesh (IAS Princeton, US) for his synthesis of analytic
number theory, homogeneous dynamics, topology, and representation
theory, which has resolved longstanding problems in areas such as
the equidistribution of arithmetic objects
*ROLF NEVANLINNA PRIZE* (honoring distinguished achievements in
mathematical aspects of information science):
* Constantinos Daskalakis (MIT, US) for transforming our understanding
of the computational complexity of fundamental problems in markets,
auctions, equilibria, and other economic structures. His work
provides both efficient algorithms and limits on what can be
performed efficiently in these domains.
*CARL FRIEDRICH GAUSS PRIZE* (for outstanding mathematical
contributions with significant impact outside of mathematics):
* David L. Donoho (Stanford University, US) for his fundamental
contributions to the mathematical, statistical and computational
analysis of important problems in signal processing.
*CHERN MEDAL* (awarded to an individual whose accomplishments warrant
the highest level of recognition for outstanding achievements in the
field of mathematics):
* Masaki Kashiwara (Kyoto University, Japan) for his outstanding and
foundational contributions to algebraic analysis and representation
theory sustained over a period of almost 50 years.
*LEELAVATI PRIZE*, sponsored by Infosys (for outstanding contributions
to public outreach in mathematics by an individual):
* Ali Nesin (Istanbul Bilgi University, Turkey) for his outstanding
contributions towards increasing public awareness of mathematics in
Turkey, in particular for his tireless work in creating the
"Mathematical Village" as an exceptional, peaceful place for
education, research and the exploration of mathematics for anyone.
The ICM hosts the *ICM EMMY NOETHER LECTURE*. The 2018 lecturer is
Sun-Yung Alice Chang (Princeton University, US). She will speak on
Conformal Geometry on 4-manifolds.
