AMS President congratulates Robert P. Langlands

"It is my great pleasure to congratulate Professor Robert P. Langlands, winner of the 2018 Abel Prize. Robert Langlands is one of the most distinguished mathematicians alive today and a towering figure in the history of modern mathematics. His insights, which grew out of penetrating technical work early in his career, have transformed and enriched both number theory and representation theory. The deep relations between the two subjects that he predicted and probed have guided the work of countless mathematicians over the last 50 years."
- Kenneth A. Ribet, AMS President, University of California, Berkeley

Niels Henrik Abel

The exceptional Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel was born on 5 August 1802. When he died, only 26 years old, he left a large body of work, including the first proof of the general binomial theorem, which had been stated by Newton and Euler. 

We present his life story and links to his works in the Niels Henrik Abel section of this website.
