The CNRS awarded its 2004 Gold Medal to one of the greatest mathematicians of our time, Alain Connes, a professor at the Collège de France and the Institut des hautes études scientifiques (IHES).
Throughout his career, Alain Connes has been interested in the solution of the mathematical problems raised by quantum physics and the theory of relativity. In particular, he revolutionized the theory of operator algebras and created a new branch of mathematics, non-commutative geometry. His work has also been recognized with the award of the Fields medal in 1982 and the Crafoord Prize in 2001.
