Join us in congratulating Larry Guth!

Larry Guth, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will receive the newly named Maryam Mirzakhani Prize in Mathematics.

Guth is receiving the $20,000 prize “for developing surprising, original, and deep connections between geometry, analysis, topology, and combinatorics, which have led to the solution of, or major advances on, many outstanding problems in these fields.” The Mirzakhani prize honors exceptional contributions to the mathematical sciences by a mid-career mathematician.

Guth has made spectacular contributions to many areas of mathematics, including systolic geometry, analysis, and combinatorics. He has developed surprising, original, and deep connections between geometry, analysis, topology, and combinatorics, leading to major advances or solutions for many outstanding problems in these fields.

His accomplishments include the introduction of a new cell decomposition of Euclidean space, writing the authoritative book on the polynomial method, and creating a new induction on scales algorithm called the Bourgain-Guth method. 

The National Academy of Sciences established the prize (formerly the NAS Award in Mathematics) to honor the late NAS member Maryam Mirzakhani (1977-2017), a highly accomplished and talented mathematician and professor at Stanford University. Made possible through generous gifts from The Simons Foundation and other benefactors, the Maryam Mirzakhani Prize in Mathematics will be presented to Guth on April 26 during the Academy's 157th annual meeting.
