New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences will host “Abel in New York” on Thurs., Feb. 21, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (Warren Weaver Hall, room 109, 251 Mercer St., betw. W. 3rd and W. 4th Sts.).

The event is co-sponsored by the Abel Committee at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

From 2005 through 2009, three Courant faculty 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.
