 "We are extremely proud and pleased that you have received the great honor of the 2013 Abel Prize from the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters in recognition of your transformative work and impact on the field of mathematics. Your keen insight and total dedication as a mathematician are matched only by your great mentorship and generous spirit, which has inspired generations of researchers here at the Institute for Advanced Study and around the world. Your commitment, impact, and modesty mirror that of Niels Henrik Abel. We wish that we could celebrate with you in Paris, but please know that your colleagues and the entire Institute community in Princeton will celebrate with you today! Congratulations again on this wonderful honor, and thanks to the Academy for the creation of this remarkable award."

About the Institute for Advanced Study

The Institute for Advanced Study is one of the world's leading centers for theoretical research and intellectual inquiry. The Institute exists to encourage and support fundamental research in the sciences and humanities--the original, often speculative thinking that produces advances in knowledge that change the way we understand the world. Work at the Institute takes place in four Schools: Historical Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Social Science. It provides for the mentoring of scholars by a permanent Faculty of no more than 28, and it offers all who work there the freedom to undertake research that will make significant contributions in any of the broad range of fields in the sciences and humanities studied at the Institute.

The Institute, founded in 1930, is a private, independent academic institution located in Princeton, New Jersey. Its more than 6,000 former Members hold positions of intellectual and scientific leadership throughout the academic world. Some 33 Nobel Laureates and 38 out of 52 Fields Medalists, as well as many winners of the Wolf or MacArthur prizes, have been affiliated with the Institute.

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
