André-Aisenstadt Prize

Congratulations to Jozsef Solymosi on winning the 2008 André-Aisenstadt Prize! The citation on the CRM web page praises him for “the extraordinary efficiency and elegance of his results at the cutting edge of a new field, additive combinatorics (sometimes called arithmetic combinatorics)” and “the simplicity and deep insight in each of his works.” What this means is that where other authors – absolutely no slouches by any standards – write 30-page papers using sophisticated technology, Jozsef will prove a better result by much simpler methods, throw in additional insights that alone make the paper worth reading, and he’ll do it all in, say, 4-5 pages. Well done!
