The Henri Poincaré Prize

sponsored by the Daniel Iagolnitzer Foundation

The Prize was created in 1997 to recognize outstanding contributions in mathematical physics, and contributions which lay the groundwork for novel developments in this broad field. The Prize is also created to recognize and support young people of exceptional promise who have already made outstanding contributions to the field of mathematical physics.

The prize is awarded every three years at the International Mathematical Physics Congress and in each case, is an award to three individuals (to be exact, the rules say approximately three allowing for exceptional circumstances, at the discretion of the prize committee).
