On Aug 29, a ubiquitous jury for awarding a Lobachevsky Medal and Prize “For Outstanding Works in Geometry and a Applications” of $ 75,000 announced a winner’s name. The Lobachevsky Medal and Prize were awarded to Richard Melvin Schoen, highbrow during a University of California, Irvine.

The Lobachevsky Prize was determined in 1896 by a Kazan Physical and Mathematical Society, in respect of a famous Russian mathematician Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky, who had been a highbrow at Kazan University and spent roughly all of his mathematical life there. The esteem was initial awarded in 1897. Between the October revolution of 1917 and World War II the Lobachevsky Prize was awarded usually twice, by the Kazan State University, in 1927 and 1937. In 1947, by a direct of the Council of Ministers of a USSR, a office over awarding a Lobachevsky Prize was eliminated to the USSR Academy of Sciences.The 1947 direct specified that there be dual prizes, awarded each 5 years: a main, international, Lobachevsky Prize, for that both Soviet and unfamiliar scientists would be eligible, and an honest discuss prize, for Soviet mathematicians only.

In 1990-1991, while scheming a 1992 jubilee of Lobachevsky’s 200th anniversary, a Kazan State University organizers of this jubilee lobbied a Soviet supervision to settle a special Kazan State University endowment in respect of Lobachevsky. A Jun 1991 direct of the Cabinet of Ministers of a USSR established the Lobachevsky Medal, for superb contributions to geometry, to be awarded by the Kazan State University. The Lobachevsky Medal was awarded by a university in 1992, 1997 and 2002.

The awards rite of a Lobachevsky Medal and 75 000 USD of esteem income are given on Dec 1 in a Alexander Hall of Kazan Federal University to Richard Melvin Schoen.

Richard Melvin Schoen (born Oct 23, 1950) is an American mathematician. Born in Celina, Ohio, and a 1968 connoisseur of Fort Recovery High School, he perceived his B.S. from the University of Dayton in mathematics. He afterwards perceived his PhD in 1977 from Stanford University and is now an Excellence in Teaching Chair during the University of California, Irvine.

Professor Schoen is an consultant in differential geometry. He binds elemental theorems on certain appetite in a ubiquitous speculation of relativity, he performed a finish resolution of a famous Yamabe problem on compress manifolds. He also done a elemental grant to a speculation of rule of minimal surfaces and harmonic maps.

Richard Schoen has also been awarded a 2017 Wolf Prize in arithmetic for his contributions to geometric research and a bargain of a interconnectedness of prejudiced differential equations and differential geometry. The UCI highbrow of mathematics, who binds a department’s Excellence in Teaching Chair, is among 8 Wolf Prize laureates this year from a United States, a United Kingdom and Switzerland.
