The Abel Prize is a Norwegian prize given to one or more outstanding mathematicians by the Government of Norway. It was instituted in 2002 to dedicate Norway's most famous mathematician, Niels Henrik Abel. Jean-Pierre Serre was the first award winner for playing a key role in shaping the modern form of many parts of mathematics, including topology, algebraic geometry, and number theory in 2003.
