De Morgan Medal Winners

Winners of the De Morgan Medal of the LMS


The De Morgan Medal, the London Mathematical Society's premier award, is awarded every third year (in years numbered by a multiple of 3), in memory of Professor A De Morgan, the Society's first President.

The De Morgan Medal for year n can only be awarded to a mathematician who is normally resident in the United Kingdom on 1st January of year n.

The only grounds for the award of the Medal are the candidate's contributions to mathematics.
