JERUSALEM (AP) - A world mathematics body says it has awarded the prestigious Fields Medal to Elon Lindenstrauss of Hebrew University of Jerusalem and three others.
The Fields Medal is awarded every four years to outstanding mathematicians up to age 40. Hebrew University said Lindenstrauss was the first Israeli to win it.
The ICM said Lindenstrauss was chosen for his work in ergodic theory. Recognizing its obscure nature, the mathematician told Israel Radio, “I will be very surprised if people will find a use for it in the foreseeable future.”
