Fields Medal stolen in Brazil within minutes of being awarded

Indian-Origin Professor Wins Fields Medal The'Nobel of Mathematics

Indian-Origin Professor Wins Fields Medal The'Nobel of Mathematics

But not long after the ceremony, he discovered his 14-carat gold Fields Medal was missing.

This year, the recipients were announced on August 1 at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Caucher Birkar's medal was stolen after the University of Cambridge professor placed it, along with his phone and wallet inside his briefcase and left it on a table in the event hall's pavilion.

Alessio Figalli of the ETH Zurich institute has been awarded the top award in mathematics, the Fields Medal, for his outstanding achievement in research.

As for Germany's Peter Scholze, who was awarded the Fields medal for his work in arithmetic algebraic geometry, he says there'll never be an end to the challenges he faces.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Fields Medal, including Akshay Venkatesh and Alessio Figalli, whose work NSF has supported.

At 16, he started his post-graduate studies at Princeton University and completed his PhD when he was 22.

However, it does not reveal how much the drones will cost and says customers should visit the Argos website for more information. The leak suggested that the drone might be able to detect obstacles with a 360-degree field of view.

In 2016, he was awarded the Infosys Prize in Mathematical Sciences. Birkar, who specialises in algebraic geometry, was raised in Iran before seeking political asylum in Britain.

Akshay Venkatesh, a professor of mathematics at Stanford University in the U.S., has become the second Australian to win a Fields Medal, often described as the Nobel Prize for mathematics.

His work uses representation theory, which represents abstract algebra in terms of more easily-understood linear algebra, and topology theory, which studies the properties of structures that are deformed through stretching or twisting, like a Möbius strip.

One of his advisers, Professor Ivan Fesenko, told The Guardian: 'I thought I should give him some problem - if he solves it, then this will be his PhD.

New Delhi-born Venkatesh, 36, who is now teaching at Stanford University, has won the Fields Medal for his profound contributions to an exceptionally broad range of subjects in mathematics. He joined the bachelor's course in mathematics at the University of Western Australia when he was 13. He showed an affinity for math from a young age, attempting to solve problems in his older brother's schoolbooks and, during high school, reading borrowed library texts all through night.

He said that at his maths club in Tehran, previous winners of the prize, which is bestowed every four years to just four people, were hung up on the walls.

"And you have got this sensation of transcendence, you feel like you've been part of something really meaningful".
