# Congratulations from AMS President David Vogan

The President of the American Mathematical Society, David Vogan, sends his congratulations to Pierre Deligne.

"On behalf of the American Mathematical Society, it is a great pleasure to congratulate Pierre Deligne, recipient of the 2013 Abel Prize. Deligne's contributions to algebraic geometry have deepened enormously our understanding of that fundamental subject, and offered powerful new connections with many other parts of mathematics. Like many other mathematicians, I have had the pleasure of seeing some of the most interesting impossible problems I knew (apparently unrelated to algebraic geometry!) beautifully resolved using his work. Congratulations!"
