  • The Abel Prize is an international prize presented by the King of Norway to one or more outstanding mathematicians. Named after Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel, the award was established in 2001 by the Government of Norway and complements the Holberg Prize in the humanities. The Abel Prize has often been described as the mathematician's "Nobel prize". It comes with a monetary award of 6 million Norwegian kroner. The prize board has also established an Abel symposium, administered by the Norwegian Mathematical Society. The award ceremony takes place in the Atrium of the University of Oslo Faculty of Law, where the Nobel Peace Prize was formerly awarded between 1947 and 1989. A prize in honour of Abel was first proposed by Sophus Lie. Lie's death marked an interruption in the establishment of the award, and King Oscar II's attempt to establish the award in 1902 was unsuccessful, complicated by the dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway three years later.
