2018 Fields Medals awarded to 4 mathematicians
The International Mathematical Union (IMU) has awarded 2018 Fields Medals to mathematicians from Italy, Germany, India, and Iran.
At a ceremony in Rio de Janeiro, on Wednesday, 30-year-old Peter Scholze was awarded the medal, making him one of the youngest Fields Medalists ever.
Scholze is a professor at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bonn and a member of a research group in algebraic and arithmetic geometry. He was recently appointed director of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn.
The other medal recipients have made great contributions to probability calculation, partial differential equations, and algebraic geometry.
