In general one can only praise and admire those that are FM laureate, great minds. This year however a very indeed handsome and totally bright Iranian (a country dear to my hearth and were the teaching is very strong already at secondary school level) young woman is amongst them. In a profession rather dominated by men (let us face it) this is a very nice surprise.  Bravo Maryam you will certainly help all the girls that fight daily to be able to study and to study maths there..

Duh, I know. I was trying to be postmodern and ironic, referencing South Park in the process. I only blame television and the demise of feudalism for that.

I have only seen Nonius on youtube (Drunken Dactylic Hexameter video). For some reason that guy reminds of the bearded guy in this:

Simons Foundation's Quanta Magazine has articles and videos on all four 2014 Fields medalists:

Artur Ávila’s solutions to ubiquitous problems in chaos theory have earned him Brazil’s first Fields Medal

Martin Hairer’s epic masterpiece in stochastic analysis "created a whole world"

Maryam Mirzakhani’s monumental work draws deep connections between topology, geometry and dynamical systems

The search for artistic truth and beauty has led Manjul Bhargava to some of the most profound recent discoveries in number theory

Shockingly, Maryam Mirzakhani died of cancer today. She was only 40 years old.

Horrible. Same age as my wife, both diagnosed the same year. Young daughter. I can really sympathize with the family. I don't know anything about her personal life, but she clearly left a tremendous legacy with her professional accomplishments.
