The Abel Prize is an annual prize awarded in memory of Niels Henrik Abel by the Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund of Norway to recognize a person’s “outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics.” A winner of the prize is called an Abel Laureate. A board of five mathematicians is chosen by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters to nominate mathematicians for the prize and make a recommendation to the Academy, which then selects the winner. Besides the prestige, the prize includes a monetary award of 750000 euros.
