Abel Prize

The Abel Prize was awarded this morning to Pierre Deligne, “for seminal contributions to algebraic geometry and for their transformative impact on number theory, representation theory, and related fields.” This award is well-deserved, and I encourage you to read the writings of Tim Gowers and Arne Sletsjøe at the link above that discuss his work.
