# Who wins the Abel prize 2023?

Let's start with the question, in which field?

Last year it was dynamicial systems/geometry, 2021 was combinatorics, 2020 was probability, 2019 was PDE. Next week will probably be number theory/algebraic geometry. And as some posters already said, Drinfeld has the biggest chance.

Uhlenbeck was differential geometry and geometric analysis not PDEs.

Furstenberg and Margulis do group theory and apply it to different areas like dynamics. Not really considered probability by anyone.

Sullivan was topology very broadly. Not for dynamical systems or geometry.

2021 was mostly for TCS.

pgcl, nearly all your classifications are wrong.

Sullivan is one of the very top people in complex dynamics. His contributions there are comparable to his contributions in topology.

Of course, people doing smooth dynamics/ergodic theory/etc don't think of complex dynamics as dynamics, but that's just because they're narrow.

Oh please no number theory or AG. Anything else would be better.

Machine learning?

Yann Le Cun perhaps?

Only 2007 was probability

Would be the end of Abel prize if this fat fuck gets it. Not that there's any risk of it happening.

Lipophobia detected, possibly associated with intolerance of neurodiverse personae who express non-normative politesse.

Nevertheless. it is indeed debatable whether LeCun's Turing Award accomplishments in machine learning are as Abel prize-worthy as the achievements of Szemerédi or Lovász & Wigderson in more mathematical aspects of computer science.

LeCun is great but he is very clearly not a mathematician.

know some people who knew him back in the day, he is not that brilliant, but was in the right field at right time. most of the deep learning people are like that.

To award it to LeCun with so math deserving mathematicians waiting would be absurd.

It's very important so he can place that in his Twitter bio (a condition for accepting the award)

Typical western award that has ignored the great Asian mathematicians of 2nd half of 20th century. Heisuke Hironaka, Shing-Tung Yau, Goro Shimura, Mikio Sato, Kashiwara. Pathetic!
