Tobias Ekholm One of the Speakers at Next International Conference of Mathematicians
Uppsala mathematician Tobias Ekholm will be one of the speakers at the next year's International Cogress of Mathematicians. The event is held every fourth year and is the largest conference for mathematics in the world. At the conference, several of major mathematical prizes are awarded, including the Fields medal, which is one of the most prestigious awards in mathematics.
Jordi Lluís Figueras Receives Prize for Best Article
This year's Barcelona Dynamical Systems Prize goes to the Uppsala mathematician Jordi Lluís Figueras. He's been awarded the prize together with Àlex Haro och Alejandro Luque.
"In this paper, the authors introduce new KAM strategies for constructing invariant tori. The new material consists of improvements in theoretical and computational methods that produce stronger results in concrete examples, like the standard map, the standard non-twist map and the Froeschlé map. Remarkably, the threshold value obtained in the standard map appears to be almost optimal."

Yves Meyer Wins this Year's Abel Prize
This year's Abel Prize goes to Yves Meyer for "his pivotal role in the development of the mathematical theory of wavelets". Meyer is professor emeriuts at École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay in France. He has previousley collaborated with the Uppsala mathematician and former Abel Prize winner Lennart Carleson.
Abel Prize is one of the most prestigeous awards in mathematics. The prize is awarded anually to one ore more outstanding mathematicians. Among previous winners there are famous mathematicians as Andrew Wiles, John Nash och Yakov Sinai.
