Abel Prize laureate, Belgian mathematician Pierre Deligne speaks during the Abel Prize awarding ceremony in Oslo Tuesday May 21, 2013. Deligne won for his "seminal contributions to algebraic geometry and for their transformative impact on number theory, representation theory, and related fields". The Abel Prize was established in 2003 in memory of the Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel. It's awarded annually by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and makes up for the fact that there isn't a Nobel Prize in mathematics.
