Number Theory

2015 Shaw Prize to Faltings and Iwaniec

The 2015 Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences is awarded to Gerd Faltings, Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, and Henryk Iwaniec, Rutgers University, for "their introduction and development of fundamental tools in number theory, allowing them as well as others to resolve some longstanding classical problems." The two will share equally in the US$1,000,000 prize.
