Hungarian professor wins prestigious prize, gets $1m

Rutgers University professor Endre Szemerédi has won the Abel Prize for his contributions to discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science. The prize comes with a cash award of $1 million.


The international prize is given annually to recognize "contributions of extraordinary depth and influence to the mathematical sciences," according to the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, which makes the award. In announcing the prize, the academy said it recognizes Szemerédi’s "profound and lasting impact" on discrete mathematics, "the study of structures such as graphs, sequences, permutations and geometric configurations which form the foundation of theoretical computer science."
A member of Rutgers’ Department of Computer Science since 1986, Szemerédi is also a permanent research fellow at the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, his native city.
Szemerédi, 71, is currently in Hungary and could not be reached for comment, but in a 2008 Star-Ledger interview, he made a shocking revelation.
"I never use computers," he said. "That is a little bit contradictory, but that is the truth."
Szemerédi will receive the prize in Oslo on May 22 from Norway’s King Harald.
Credited with being one of the first scientists to recognize the importance of theoretical computer science, he has published more than 200 scientific articles and made numerous discoveries, including his namesake Szemerédi’s Theorem.
The Abel Committee said "Szemerédi’s approach to mathematics exemplifies the strong Hungarian problem-solving tradition. The theoretical impact of his work has been a game-changer."
Although he is recognized for his influence on today’s mathematics, Szemerédi came to the field late. He attended medical school for a year and worked in a factory before studying mathematics at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, according to his biography from the academy. He earned his master’s degree in 1965 and a doctorate from Moscow State University in 1970.
In the book, "An Irregular Mind," published in conjunction with a conference in Budapest in 2010 that celebrated Szemerédi’s 70th birthday, the researcher is described as having "a brain that is wired differently than for most mathematicians. Many of us admire his unique way of thinking, his extraordinary vision."
Szemerédi has won numerous prizes and is a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.
First awarded in 2003, the Abel Prize honors outstanding scientific work in the field of mathematics and the mathematical aspects of computer science, physics, probability, numerical analysis, scientific computing and statistics. It is named for Niels Henrik Abel, an esteemed Norwegian mathematician who died of tuberculosis at age 26 in 1829.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
