Excerpts from a telephone interview with Kailash Satyarthi following the announcement of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, 10 October 2014 conducted by Adam Smith, Chief Scientific Officer of Nobel Media.
Manjul Bhargava was awarded the prestigious Fields Medal, considered to be the Nobel Prize of mathematics, at a grand ceremony held in Seoul, Korea, on August 13, 2014. Officially called the International Medal for Outstanding Discoveries in Mathematics, it is awarded once every four years and regarded as the greatest honour a mathematician can receive.
His award citation described Bhargava's groundbreaking work in number theory as "based both on a deep understanding of the representations of arithmetic groups and a unique blend of algebraic and analytic expertise."
Bhargava, a mathematics professor at Princeton University, is driven by his search for artistic truth and beauty and is credited with some of the most profound recent discoveries in number theory, the branch of mathematics that studies the relationships between whole numbers.
In the past few years, he has made great strides toward understanding the range of possible solutions to equations known as elliptic curves, which have bedeviled number theorists for more than a century.
