In the American mathematician Richard Hamilton took up the idea of studying how a manifold develops as its curvature is smoothed out, using what is known perwlman a Ricci flow after the Italian mathematician Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro. He was not fast. The long list of declined awards and prize also includes another prestigious prize by European Mathematical Society.

Aleksandr Aleksandrov Yuri Burago. There was a problem with your submission. As he had done with the Fields Medal, Perelman refused the prize. Archived from the original on March 30, Hamilton’s fundamental idea is to formulate a “dynamical process” in which a given three-manifold is geometrically distorted such that this distortion process is governed by a differential equation analogous to the heat equation.

Perelman’s article was terse and telegraphic, with large gaps in his reasoning, but after he sent e-mails to a few of his former colleagues they sensed the importance of his discovery. All indications are that his arguments are correct. The analogous result has been known to be true in dimensions greater than or equal to five since as in the work of Stephen Smale.
