Ehud Hrushovski awarded the Heinz Hopf Prize

Oxford Mathematician Ehud Hrushovski has been awarded the 2019 Heinz Hopf Prize for his outstanding contributions to model theory and their application to algebra and geometry.

The Heinz Hopf Prize at ETH Zurich honours outstanding scientific achievements in the field of pure mathematics. The prize is awarded every two years with the recipient giving the Heinz Hopf Lecture. This year Ehud spoke on 'Logic and geometry: the model theory of finite fields and difference fields.'
