Mikhail Leonidovich Gromov is one of the leading mathematicians of our time. He is known for
important contributions in many areas of mathematics, especially geometry.
Geometry is one of the oldest fields of mathematics; it has engaged the
attention of great mathematicians through the centuries, but has undergone a
revolutionary change in the last 50 years. Gromov has
led some of the most important developments, producing profoundly original
general ideas which have resulted in new perspectives on geometry and other
areas of mathematics.

The
Abel Committee says: ¡°Mikhail Leonidovich
Gromov is always in pursuit of new questions and is
constantly thinking of new ideas for solutions to old problems. He has produced
deep and original work throughout his career and remains remarkably creative.
The work of Gromov will continue to be a source of
inspiration for many future mathematical discoveries¡±.

Mikhail Leonidovich Gromov was born on December 23,

Since 1982, Gromov has held a position as Permanent
Professor at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques, Bures-sur-Yvette,
France. IHÉS is an institute for advanced research in
mathematics, theoretical physics and other related scientific fields. He has
been a French citizen since 1992. Mikhail
Leonidovich Gromov is currently also Jay Gould Professor
of Mathematics at Courant Institute of
Mathematical Sciences,

Mikhail Leonidovich Gromov has received many distinguished international awards, including the Kyoto
Prize in Basic Sciences (2002), the Balzan Prize
(1999), the Leroy P. Steele Prize (1997), the Lobatchewski
Medal (1997) and the Wolf Prize (1993). He is a foreign member of the U.S.
National Academy of Sciences and of the

The Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund
was established in 2002 to award the Abel Prize for outstanding scientific work
in the field of mathematics. The prize is awarded by the
