Laureates

Mikhael Leonidovich Gromov

Mathematician

Professor Gromov’s original insights integrate a variety of fields – including geometry, algebra, and analysis – and have had a substantial impact on all the mathematical sciences. Through the application of innovative ideas and radical nontraditional mathematical methods, he has made major breakthroughs that solve numerous complicated problems in modern geometry.

*This field then was Field of Mathematical Sciences.
