Vesselin Dimitrov

Vesselin Dimitrov's achievements include surprising breakthroughs such as the proof of the Schinzel-Zassenhaus conjecture and - in joint work with Frank Calegari and Yunqing Tang - the proof of the unbounded denominators conjecture by Atkin and Swinnerton-Dyer. We are excited to hear what he will tell us about his current work in his presentation at the award ceremony.
The Oberwolfach Prize is awarded about every three years by the Oberwolfach Foundation and the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach to excellent early career researchers in changing fields of mathematics. The Scientific Committee of the Gesellschaft für mathematische Forschung e.V. is involved in selecting the fellows from the nominations. The Oberwolfach Prize comes with an award of Euro 10,000.
