The 2017 André Parent Prize

Submitted by Insmi on Tue, 06/27/2017 - 11:46

The André Parent Prize honours a research work led by a group of young mathematicians of secondary and high school. The research may or may not be supervised. It should handle a scientific subject in which mathematics play an important role. The selection committee takes into account the relevancy of the subject chosen, the mathematical skills of the candidates, as well as the capacity to present their subject to a general public audience.

Claire Voisin and János Kollár are awarded the 2017 Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences
