Charles Fefferman (left), Princeton University, and Richard Schoen (right),

University of California, Irivine, have been named the winners of the 2017

Wolf Prize in Mathematics for "their striking contributions to analysis and

geometry." The two will share the US$100,000 prize. (Photos courtesy of

The citation for Charles Fefferman notes that he has "made major

contributions to several fields, including several complex variables,

partial differential equations and subelliptic problems. He introduced new

fundamental techniques into harmonic analysis and explored their application

to a wide range of fields including fluid dynamics, spectral geometry and

mathematical physics," and "He solved major problems related to the fine

structure of solutions to partial differential equations." Fefferman

received the Fields Medal in 1978, the Bergman Prize in 1982, and the B么

cher Memorial Prize in 2008.

Richard Schoen was recognized as "a pioneer and a driving force in geometric

analysis." The citation continues: "His work on the regularity of harmonic

maps and minimal surfaces had a lasting impact on the field. His solution of

the Yamabe problem is based on the discovery of a deep connection to

general relativity. Through his work on geometric analysis Schoen has

contributed greatly to our understanding of the interrelation between

partial differential equations and differential geometry." Schoen received

the B么cher Memorial Prize in 1989, and is a member of the National Academy

of Sciences, as well as a fellow of the AMS, the American Academy of Arts
