When will mathematics and mathematicians get the credit to them that is due? Before a physicist can do their work, a mathematician had to invent the mathematics to do physics. Computer science relies heavily on mathematics. Economics was added in the late 60's so why doesn't the Nobel commitee add a category for mathematics? Sure we have the Fields medal which is very prestigious, but that is only every 4 years and discriminates agaisnt anyone over 40 yrs. old.
