Three good news in the beginning of 2011

The year of 2011 started with some good news from some of my mathematical friends/colleagues:

  • Last January 15, Jacob Palis was awarded “Prêmo Faz Diferença” (Makes Difference Prize in a rough translation from Portuguese) in the category Sciences and History: this prize is an initiative from the newspaper journal OGLOBO (one of the most influential in Brazil) to recognize Brazilians whose talent and hard work helped to their country; for those who can read Portuguese, the prize citation can be found here.

For the time being, I will refrain myself from promising to make posts related to their works in a near future (because I still have to finish my series of posts on Teichmuller dynamics over special SL(2,\mathbb{R})-orbits). However, since the work done by them is very exciting, this is a very plausible possibility for the future.

Anyway, congratulations to Amie, Jacob and Nalini for the more than deserved prizes!
