Prof. Sir Martin Hairer is Laureate of the 2021 Breakthrough Prize
Prof. Sir Martin Hairer, former 2016/2017 Sackler Distinguished Lecturer, wins $3m Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics
The 2021 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics was awarded to Prof. Sir Martin Hairer, for ‘transformative contributions to the theory of stochastic analysis, particularly the theory of regularity structures in stochastic partial differential equations’. Prof. Sir Hairer is a world leader in the field of stochastic analysis, which provides conceptual and computational methods for rigorously modeling the interactions within high dimensional random systems. His work at the interface between probability theory and partial differential equations has created a body of work that is widely recognized as having revolutionized an entire field of research. The Mortimer and Raymond Sackler Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) offers its warmest congratulations to its past Sackler Distinguished lecturer in Mathematics Prof. Sir Hairer on receiving this most prestigious award.
