« Robert Langlands, Mathematical Visionary, Wins the Abel Prize.

Generations of researchers have pursued his “Langlands program,” which seeks to create a grand unified theory of mathematics.

Langlands, 81, an emeritus professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, is the progenitor of the “Langlands program,” which explores a deep connection between two pillars of modern mathematics : number theory, which studies arithmetic relationships between numbers, and analysis, which is an advanced form of calculus. The link has far-reaching consequences that mathematicians have used to answer centuries-old questions about the properties of prime numbers. »
