CMI announces that the 2013 Clay Research Award has been made to Rahul Pandharipande (ETH, Zürich) for his recent outstanding work in enumerative geometry, specifically for his proof in a large class of cases of the MNOP conjecture that he formulated with Maulik, Okounkov, and Nekrasov. The conjecture relates two methods of counting curves in […]
