Abel Prize Winners, 2015
Nobel Laureate John Nash Jr., and Louis Nirenberg, were named as co-winners of the 2015 Abel Prize by the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters. The Academy stated that the two "mathematical giants of the 20th century" made breakthroughs that have become "essential tools for the study of nonlinear partial differential equations."
The 86 year old Nash, perhaps most notably known for the 2001 film, "A Beautiful Mind", is a senior research mathematician at Princeton University. He won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994 for his work in game theory.
The 90 year old Nirenberg is a Professor Emeritus at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and has had "one of the longest and most feted careers in mathematics" with many results named after him and his collaborators.
