One of four awarded the 2014 Whitehead Prize
Dr Tom Coates was awarded a 2014 Whitehead Prize for his influential work in Gromov-Witten theory. The Whitehead Prize is awarded yearly by the London Mathematical Society to multiple mathematicians working in the UK who are at an early stage of their career.
Dr Coates' work in Gromov-Witten theory includes the quantum Lefschetz theorem, the crepant resolution conjecture, the quantum cohomology of stacks, the higher genus theory of Calabi-Yau manifolds, and the Fanosearch program.
