Jean-Pierre Serre (Collège de France, Paris) is one of the most eminent mathematicians of our time. He was awarded the Fields Medal (commonly regarded as mathematics' Nobel Prize) in 1954 at the age of 28 (the youngest recipient ever) and the first Abel Prize in 2003. Extract from the citation: "The first Abel Prize has been awarded to Jean- Pierre Serre... Serre's work is of extraordinary breadth, depth and influence. He has played a key role in shaping the modern form of many parts of mathematics, including topology, algebraic geometry and number theory."
J-P. Serre delivered the Arf Lecture 2006 at METU last week and will be giving the following seminar at Sabancı University:
