Fields Medal Symposium: showcasing the magic of math

In 1932, U of T Professor John Charles Fields established the Fields Medal to create an award for Mathematics comparable to a Nobel Prize. Today it is commonly viewed as the greatest honour a mathematician can receive.

This year, U of T and the Fields Institute are launching the Fields Medal Symposium to recognize the efforts of previous Fields Medal recipients and to help promote the field of mathematics internationally.
