Sir Andrew Wiles Receives the Abel Prize
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters has decided to award the Abel Prize for 2016 to Sir Andrew J. Wiles, University of Oxford, "for his stunning proof of Fermat's Last Theorem by way of the modularity conjecture for semistable elliptic curves".
The Abel Prize was established by the Norwegian government in 2002 to recognize contributions to the field of mathematics that are of extraordinary depth and influence.
