### What is the most prestigious math award?

The Fields Medal

### Who Won Fields Medal 2020?

Gregory A. Margulis

Yale’s Gregory A. Margulis, widely considered one of the most innovative and influential mathematicians of the past half-century, has been awarded the Abel Prize in Mathematics — among the world’s leading honors in mathematics, along with the Field Medal and the Wolf Prize.

**Why is there no Nobel Prize for math?**

Nobel, an inventor and industrialist, did not create a prize in mathematics simply because he was not particularly interested in mathematics or theoretical science. (Probably as a result of this language, the physics prize has been awarded for experimental work much more often than for advances in theory.)

**Who is considered as father of mathematics?**

Archimedes

Archimedes is considered the father of mathematics because of his notable inventions in mathematics and science. He was in the service of King Hiero II of Syracuse. At that time, he developed many inventions. Archimedes made out a pulley system designed to help the sailors move objects up and down that are weighty.
