The American Institute of Mathematics has announced the fifth Alexanderson Award. The award is given in honor of Gerald Alexanderson, Professor of Mathematics at Santa Clara University and founding chair of AIM’s Board of Trustees. The Alexanderson Award recognizes outstanding research articles arising from AIM research activities that have been published within the past three years.

The recipients of this year’s Alexanderson Award are Kaisa Matomäki, Maksym Radziwiłł, Terence Tao, Joni Teräväinen, and Tamar Ziegler for their paper “Higher uniformity of bounded multiplicative functions in short intervals on average” published in the Annals of Mathematics in 2023. The research originated from a working group at the AIM workshop “Sarnak’s conjecture” in December, 2018

On January 3, 2024, all five recipients were honored at the Prize Session of the 2024 Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Francisco, and on January 4 Joni Teräväinen delivered the Alexanderson Award Lecture. **Read more…**
