Nemmers Prize

The Frederic Esser Nemmers Prize in Mathematics


Erwin Esser Nemmers and his brother Frederic Esser Nemmers left $14 million on their deaths to Northwestern University to fund a range of prizes equal in status to the Nobel Prizes. However the money was insufficient for this purpose so, until the fund builds up further, only two prizes are being awarded, one in economics and one in mathematics. They are given for:-

... work of lasting significance ...

and recognize

... major contributions to new knowledge or the development of significant new modes of analysis.
