The Mathematical Society of Japan (MSJ) has awarded Kavli IPMU Associate Professor Tomoyuki Abe the 2017 MSJ Spring Prize.

The award ceremony was held on March 25 during the MSJ’s Annual Meeting at Tokyo Metropolitan University.

Originally established in 1973 as the MSJ Iyanaga Prize, the MSJ Spring Prize was inaugurated in 1988. The prize, which is the highest recognition for members of the MSJ, is awarded annually to mathematicians who are under 40 years old and have produced excellent research results.

Associate Professor Abe was recognized for his contributions to the “study of arithmetic D-module theory and Langlands correspondence.”
