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.
collaborates with the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters to stimulate the interest in mathematics both domestically and internationally, in particular aimed at children and the young and the developing countries.
The Board for the Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund has established an annual Abel Symposium, which is administrated by the Norwegian Mathematical Society.
The Abel Symposium 2012
The Abel Symposium “Operator-Related Function Theory and Time-Frequency Analysis” will be organized August 21–24, 2012, in Oslo, Norway.
