The IAMP Early Career Award
Calls for nominations: Deadline January 31, 2018. More information can be found here.
The prize is awarded at the International Congress of Mathematical
Physics (ICMP) in recognition of a single achievement in Mathematical
Physics. The prize consists of the sum of 3000 € and is reserved
for scientists whose age in years since birth on July 31 of the year
of the Congress is less than 35.
- A nomination for the prize should include the name of the candidate
accompanied by a brief characterisation of the work singled out for
the prize. Members of the IAMP should send their nomination or
nominations not earlier than 18 months following the last ICMP and not
later than 6 months before the next ICMP, to the President and to the
Secretary by e-mail, and a fax or a hard copy should follow the
e-mail. The call for nominations will be posted on the IAMP Web site
and the link will be sent by e-mail to the IAMP members.
- The recipient of the prize will be selected by a committee of 5
members determined by votes within the EC. There will be two separate
ballots. The first ballot shall select the Chairman who will be chosen
from among the members of the EC. The second ballot shall select the
other four members from a list constructed by the EC with the advice
of earlier recipients of the prize. The EC shall decide the membership
of the committee within one month of the expiration of the deadline
- The Committee may consider candidates that have not been nominated
by the members. The names of committee members will remain
confidential within the EC until the prize ceremony. The IAMP will
make every reasonable effort to make attendance at the ceremony
possible for the selected candidate.
||for his fundamental contributions in the rigorous analysis of critical phenomena, in particular for establishing the critical point in the two-dimensional random cluster model and for the proof of
the continuity of the magnetization at the critical temperature in the ferromagnetic Ising model.
|| for clarifying the structure of ergodic one
dimensional systems, including the almost Matthieu operator. In a
series of papers, some single authored, some with collaborators, Avila
has solved almost all open questions on the almost Matthieu operator
and provided insight into the structure of absolutely continuous
spectra in more general ergodic models
for his important contributions to the understanding of the strong cosmic censorship conjecture and Price law in general relativity
