The Jerusalem Mathematics Colloquium is happy to host the Levitzki Prize
Ceremony and Lecture.
The ceremony will commence at 3:30 pm, consisting of words about the late
Professor Yakov Levitzki, given by the Chair of the Institute of Mathematics, and followed by the awarding of the prize by the Levitzki family.
The prize recipient will deliver the Levitzki Prize Lecture at 4pm.
Dr. Shlomo Gelaki
"New results in the theory of Hopf algebras"
Light refreshments will be available.
The Levitzki Prize was instituted by Professor Alex Levitzki in memory of
his parents Jacob and Charlotte. Professor Jacob Levitzki z"l was one of the
founders of the Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University, and
the prize is to be awarded biannually to a recent Israeli Ph.D. who has
written a thesis in algebra or related areas. The first Levitzki prize
was awarded to Dr Yakov Varshavsky of the Hebrew University. Dr Gelaki is
the second receipient. The citation for the award of the prize reads:
Dr Gelaki has made new inroads in the field of Hopf Algebras, both by
solving old outstanding open problems, and by introducing new ideas and
concepts. His work is changing significantly the appearance of the subject.
