Bôcher Memorial Prize
The Bôcher Prize is awarded for a notable paper in analysis published during the preceding six years.
The first to be offered by the AMS, this prize was founded in memory of Professor Maxime Bôcher (pictured), who served as President of the AMS from 1909-1910. The original endowment was contributed by members of the Society.
The current prize amount is US$5,000, awarded every three years. To be eligible, papers must be either authored by an AMS member or published in a recognized North American journal.
Most Recent Prize: 2014
The 2014 Bôcher Prize was awarded to Simon Brendle for his outstanding solutions of long standing problems in geometric analysis including the solution with R. Schoen of the differentiable sphere theorem (JAMS 22 2009) and the solution of the Lawson conjecture (to appear Acta Mathematica 2013). Brendle is also recognized for his deep contributions to the study of the Yamabe equation."
