Vojtech Rödl and Mathias Schacht to be awarded the SIAM 2012 George Pólya Prize.
Published: 04/30/2012
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics [SIAM] established the George Pólya Prize in 1969 and awards it every two years, alternately in two categories: combinatorial theory and in another research area represented in the wide range of interests of Professor Pólya. In a career that included positions at ETH Zürich and Stanford University, Pólya made important contributions in number theory, analysis, geometry, algebra, probability and combinatorics, and to our understanding of how mathematicians solve problems, and how this skill can be taught.

In 2012, the award will go to Vojtech Rödl, Emory University, and Mathias Schacht, University of Hamburg, for their seminal research in combinatorics on the regularity method for hypergraphs. Their work, contained in several articles, is the culmination of a research program initiated by Professor Rödl more than 20 years ago. The award will be given at the SIAM Annual Meeting in Minneapolis this July. In addition to the important recognition afforded by the prize, it includes a $20,000 award, to be split by the winners. A description of the SIAM George Pólya Prize and a list of winners, including many of the leading combinatorialists of the last 4 decades, can be found at:

Congratulations, Vojtech and Mathias!
