CRM-Fields 1995: H. S. M. Coxeter

The first CRM-Fields Prize was given to Professor H.S.M. Coxeter of the University of Toronto. On September 22, 1995, Prof. Coxeter gave his lecture "Evolution of Coxeter-Dynkin Diagrams". He was awarded his prize by director Luc Vinet. Prof. Coxeter gave another talk for undergraduates. In an overcrowded hall, with people standing along the walls and sitting on the floor, Prof. Coxeter gave a lecture entitled "Euler's formula for polyhedra." It is an experience that will be remembered by many young mathematicians.

Prix - Menu
The CRM created and administers, either alone or jointly, four of the eight major national prizes in the mathematical sciences, namely:  the CRM–Fields–PIMS Prize,  the Prize for Theoretical Physics awarded in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP), the Prize for young researchers in Statistics awarded jointly with the Statistical Society of Canada (SSC), and the CRM Aisenstadt Prize awarded to rising young Canadian stars, selected by CRM's Scientific Advisory Panel. The CRM has invested enormously in time, effort and in its own resources, to propel leading Canadian scientists into the spotlight, giving them international recognition when they most need it.
