Stephen Smale is one of the leading mathematicians of our time. He was awarded the Fields Medal in 1966. In the same year he was also awarded the Velben Prize in Geometry by the American Mathematical Society. In 1996 he received the National Medal of Science. In 2007 he was awarded the Wolf Prize in mathematics.
His pioneering work on basic research questions has led to major advances in pure and applied mathematics. More recently, his research has been focused on foundations of learning theory.
