24/08/ On Tuesday the 22nd of August the most prestigous prize in mathematics — the Fields Medal — was awarded to four mathematicians at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Madrid. The Fields Medal is akin to the Nobel Prize in the honour it bestows on its recipients, and is awarded to up to four mathematicians every four years, whenever the Congress meets. Conditions of the award. The Fields Medal is often described as the "Nobel Prize of Mathematics" and for a long time was regarded as the most prestigious award in the field of r, in contrast to the Nobel Prize, the Fields Medal is awarded only every four Fields Medal also has an age limit: a recipient must be under age 40 on 1 January of the year in which the medal Awarded for: Outstanding contributions in mathematics .

Mathematics (from Greek μάθημα máthēma, "knowledge, study, learning") includes the study of such topics as quantity (number theory), structure (), space (), and change (mathematical analysis). It has no generally accepted definition.. Mathematicians seek and use patterns to formulate new conjectures; they resolve the truth or falsity of conjectures by mathematical proof. By Gilead Amit. The Fields medals are considered the ultimate accolade in mathematics. First awarded in , since up to four of them have been awarded every four years at the International.
