UCLA Mathematics Professor Terence Tao has been named co-winner of the King Faisal International Prize for Science (mathematics). Tao is noted for “his highly original solutions of very difficult and important problems and for his technical brilliance in the use of the necessary mathematical machinery.” The King Faisal Foundation was established in 1976 in honor of the late King Faisal ibn Abd Al Aziz of Saudia Arabia. The international awards encompass five prize categories, including science, which was added in 1982 and covers physics, mathematics, chemistry and biology.
