Description

In many fields of scientific research, the highest distinction is the Nobel Prize. In mathematics, there is for historical reasons no Nobel Prize, however, the so-called Fields Medal awarded every 4 years for "Outstanding Discoveries in Mathematics" carries similar prestige and distinction. In this book 7 Fields Medalists have each written down their view of the current development of research in their respective fields. The book will appeal to every mathematician and graduate students of mathematics, and provides a fascinating insight and commentary on present-day mathematics as a growing and moving research discipline.
