Yale’s Gregory Margulis wins 2020 Abel Prize in Mathematics

Teacher Insights

Gregory A. Margulis of Yale University has been awarded the Abel Prize in Mathematics — among the world’s leading honors in mathematics, along with the Field Medal and the Wolf Prize. Margulis, the Erastus L. DeForest Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, has now won all three honors: He won the Wolf Prize in 2005 and the Fields Medal in 1978.

The King of Norway will present the Abel Prize to Margulis and co-winner Hillel Furstenberg of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. A ceremony previously scheduled for May will be rescheduled due to concerns relating to coronavirus-2019.

Margulis is the first Yale mathematician to receive the Abel Prize. Margulis is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, a foreign honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an honorary fellow of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, and a fellow of the Fields Institute and the American Mathematical Society. He has also received the Medal of the College de France, a Humboldt Research Award, the Lobachevsky Prize, and the Dobrushin International Prize.
