"On behalf of the American Mathematical Society, it is my great pleasure to congratulate Professor Karen Uhlenbeck, recipient of the 2019 Abel Prize. Professor Uhlenbeck has made legendary advances in several fields of mathematics. Her early groundbreaking work on harmonic maps gave rise to a new field, geometric analysis. Her analysis via gauge theory of solutions of Yang-Mills equations, had and will continue to have a profound influence on all future work in this field. She transformed the fields of geometry and analysis, crossing boundaries and making deep discoveries at the interfaces."  AMS President Jill Pipher

Chemistry 2019

Location: University of Oslo and The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters

Professor Odd Hassel together with Professor D. H. R. Barton, UK, were in 1969 awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. On that occasion the Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo, will arrange an international conference in honor of Odd Hassel. The conference will highlight the importance of Hassel´s establishment of the structure of cyclohexane and the field of conformation analysis and its importance for the modern aspect of chemistry, biology, medicine, material sciences and catalysis.
