You have probably heard many times that the closest analogue of the Nobel Prize for mathematics is the Fields Medal. But today I realized that it is not. There is a much closer analogue - the Abel prize.
In particular, both the Nobel and the Abel prize are about $1.5 million, while the Fields medal is only about $15.000. In addition, Nobel and Abel prizes are awarded each year, while Fields medal is awarded every four years. For more details see
