NICOLE TOMCZAK-JAEGERMAN: RECIPIENT OF THE 2006 CRM-FIELDS-PIMS PRIZE
The directors of the Centre de recherches mathematiques (CRM) of
l'Universite de Montreal - Francois Lalonde, the Fields Institute -
Barbara Keyfitz, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical
Sciences - Ivar Ekeland, are pleased to announce the awarding of the
CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize for 2006 to Professor Nicole Tomczak-Jaegermann
of the University of Alberta in recognition of her exceptional
achievements in functional analysis and geometric analysis.
The prize was established in 1994 as the CRM-Fields prize to recognize
exceptional research in the mathematical sciences. In 2005, PIMS
became an equal partner and the name was changed to the
CRM-Fields-PIMS prize. A committee appointed by the three institutes
chooses the recipient.
Nicole Tomczak-Jaegermann, this year's recipient, is one of the
world's leading mathematicians working in functional analysis. She
has made outstanding contributions to infinite dimensional Banach
space theory, asymptotic geometric analysis, and the interaction
between these two streams of modern functional analysis.
She holds a Canada Research Chair in Geometric Analysis at the
University of Alberta. In 1998 she gave an invited lecture at the
International Congress of Mathematicians, is a Fellow of the Royal
Society of Canada, received a Killam Research Fellowship, and the
Krieger-Nelson Prize Lectureship of the Canadian Mathematical Society.
Previous recipients of the prize are H.S.M. (Donald) Coxeter, George
A. Elliott, James Arthur, Robert V. Moody, Stephen A. Cook, Israel
Michael Sigal, William T. Tutte, John B. Friedlander, John McKay,
Edwin Perkins, Donald A. Dawson, and David Boyd.
