ESI Medal Award Ceremony 2022

The Medal of the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics for the year 2022 is awarded to Martin Hairer, Professor of Pure Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics of Imperial College London.

Professor Hairer is honored for his groundbreaking work on stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs). Physicists and mathematicians use SPDEs to describe physical systems which evolve in an environment permeated by randomness. However, for the modeling of some fundamental physical phenomena such as random interface growth, the mathematical tools developed over the past several centuries are insufficient to make sense of these singular, nonlinear, noise-driven equations, much less to solve them. In a remarkable breakthrough, Hairer's theory of regularity structures overcomes this barrier. It provides a powerful and coherent toolbox, which has already enabled the solution of several important SPDEs by him and his coauthors and which opens a pathway to new discoveries.

The award ceremony will take place on November 4, 2022, at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute in Vienna.


There will also be the opportunity to follow the ceremony online.
