    Stanford's Maryam Mirzakhani wins Fields Medal

    Maryam Mirzakhani is the first woman to ever win the Fields Medal – known as the "Nobel Prize of mathematics" – in recognition of her contributions to the understanding of the symmetry of curved surfaces.

    There were three other winners.

    Ah, Manjul Bhargava finally won it. I was an avid follower of his worked Putnam solutions (along with Kiran Kedlaya and Lenny Ng).
