The Wolf Prize for Mathematics, the third most prestigious distinction in Mathematics after the Abel Prize and the Fields Medal, has been awarded in 2019 jointly to Jean-Francois Le Gall from the University Paris Sud "for his profound and elegant works on stochastic processes", and to Gregory Lawler from Chicago University. This is the brightest award of an already impressive list of academic recognitions that Jean-Francois Le Gall has received: he gave a plenary lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2014, is a member of the French Academy of Sciences since 2013, was awarded the Silver Medal of CNRS, the Fermat Prize, the Loeve Prize and the Sophie Germain Prize,... We seize this opportunity and review succinctly in reverse chronological order some of his main achievements in the field of Probability Theory.
