The Ramanujan Prize was established in 2005 to recognize outstanding work by young mathematicians in fields related to the work of the late Srinivasa Ramanujan -- the age limit for the prize is 32. Tsimerman is recognized for his work on the Andre-Oort Conjecture and for his mastery of both analytic number theory and algebraic geometry. Tsimerman completed his Ph.D.
We invite all students who wish to participate in this mathematical exam competition to register via email - email@example.com
