Sir Andrew J. 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 (62), University of Oxford, “for his stunning proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem by way of the modularity conjecture for semistable elliptic curves, opening a new era in number theory.” The President of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, Ole M. Sejersted, announced the winner of the 2016 Abel Prize at the Academy in Oslo today, 15 March. Andrew J. Wiles will receive the Abel Prize from H.R.H.

DAAD Spring School on Combinatorial Stochastic Processes

DAAD Spring School on Combinatorial Stochastic Processes has opened on March 7, 2016 at VIASM. The topic of our spring school is “Combinatorial stochastic processes and its applications”. This field studies random permutations and partitions of a large population, and the reverse process, the merging of smaller units into progressively larger communities, called coalescent.
