The Fermat Prize for research in mathematics rewards the research work of mathematiciants in fields where Pierre de Fermat's contributions were decisive :

  • statements of variational principles ;

  • foundations of the calculus of probabilities and of analytic geometry ;

  • number theory.

Within these fields, the spirit of the prize is to reward results which are accessible to the greatest number of professional mathematicians. Since 1989, The Fermat Prize is awarded every two years by the Institute of Mathematics of Toulouse, under the aegis of Université Paul Sabatier.
