Professor Akshay Venkatesh has been awarded the Infosys Prize in Mathematical Sciences. He is honored for “his exceptionally wide ranging, foundational and creative contributions to modern number theory. His unique ability to use wide ranging techniques drawn from analytic number theory, ergodic theory, homotopy theory to address concrete problems in number theory and discover new phenomena attest to the essential unity of mathematics.”
