Stiftung A.M. Ostrowski für einen internationalen Preis in höherer Mathematik

The Foundation

The   Foundation A. M. Ostrowski for an international prize in higher mathematics was created by Alexander Markovich Ostrowski (1893-1986) who  from 1928 to 1958 was professor of mathematics at the University of Basel.  The aim of  the foundation is to promote mathematics by providing every other year an international prize for the best achievements in pure mathematics or in the theoretical foundations of numerical mathematics.

Since 1989 the first prize has been awarded, in general, every other year.
