# Mathematical summit at Courant in New York

New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences will host the "Abel in New York" event on Thursday, Feb. 21, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Courant's three Abel laureates will give lectures. Other speakers will include members of the current Abel committee. For a complete schedule of presentations, go to: http://bit.ly/WKyOnU.

From 2005 through 2009, three Courant faculty members were awarded the Abel Prize, which many consider to be the Nobel Prize in mathematics: Peter Lax (2005); Raghu Varadhan (2007); and Mikhail Gromov (2009). The award is accompanied by a prize of approximately $950,000. All three will give presentations at the Feb. 21 event. Other speakers include members of Abel Committee: Stanislav Smirnov of the University of Geneva; Gang Tian of Princeton University and Beijing University, and Noga Alon of Tel Aviv University.

The event is free and open to the public. To RSVP, go to: http://bit.ly/XjMrqs.

Reporters interested in attending must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU's Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.
