2014 Fields Medals:
- Martin Hairer is awarded a Fields Medal for his outstanding contributions to the theory of stochastic partial differential equations, and in particular for the creation of a theory of regularity structures for such equations.
- Maryam Mirzakhani is awarded the Fields Medal for her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces.
- Artur Avila is awarded a Fields Medal for his profound contributions to dynamical systems theory, which have changed the face of the field, using the powerful idea of renormalization as a unifying principle.
- Manjul Bhargava is awarded a Fields Medal for developing powerful new methods in the geometry of numbers, which he applied to count rings of small rank and to bound the average rank of elliptic curves.
Chaos-theory pioneer nabs Abel Prize
Yakov Sinai has developed fundamental tools for the study of unpredictable phenomena.
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters has awarded the 2014 Abel Prize to Russian-born mathematical physicist Yakov Sinai of Princeton University in New Jersey. The award cites his “fundamental contributions to dynamical systems, ergodic theory, and mathematical physics”.
