ICM 2022

Despite all the challenges it faced, the international mathematics community has come together to create an ICM in 2022 like no other.

Fields Medallist June Huh tells us about maths you can "feel and touch" and why maths mirrors who we are as a species

In this podcast we talk to Hugo Duminil-Copin, who tells us how his work in statistical physics brings together his two loves – maths and physics.

In this podcast we talk to James Maynard, who has won a 2022 Fields Medal for his spectacular contributions to number theory.

We are very pleased to announce the winners of Fields Medals 2022, as well as the all the other prizes from the ICM 2022, and talk to Fields Medallist Maryna Viazovska.

Mark Braverman has won the Abacus Medal for a mathematical approach to solving problems while sharing as little information as possible.

Fields Medallist Duminil-Copin's work in statistical physics brings together his two loves – maths and physics.

Maynard went from a fascination with numbers as a young child to making spectacular contributions to number theory that have earned him a Fields Medal.

Huh may have had relatively late start in mathematics but his work with maths you can feel and touch has won him a Fields medal.

Viazovska is only the second woman to receive a Fields Medal, for her ground-breaking proof to a problem we're all familiar with.

Hugo Duminil-Copin has been awarded a Fields Medal for solving longstanding problems in statistical physics. He told us about how his work brings together his two loves – maths and physics.

Mark Braverman has won the Abacus Medal for developing the theory of information complexity. He told us about the role of communication in computation, and why a mathematical view can help you understand how to solve problems while sharing as little information as possible.
