Professor Noga Alon has received the 2024 Wolf Prize in Mathematics “for pioneering contributions to mathematical cryptography, combinatorics, and the theory of computer science.” He shares the prize with Adi Shamir of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.

The Wolf Prize citation called out Alon’s “profound impact on discrete mathematics and related areas. His seminal contributions include the development of ingenious techniques in combinatorics, graph theory and theoretical computer science, and the solution of long-standing problems in these fields as well as in analytical number theory, combinatorial geometry, and information theory.
