The Chevalley Prize was established in 2014 by George Lusztig to honor Claude Chevalley (1909-1984). Chevalley was a founding member of the Bourbaki group. He made fundamental contributions to class field theory, algebraic geometry, and group theory. His three-volume treatise on Lie groups served as standard reference for many decades. His classification of semisimple groups over an arbitrary algebraically closed field provides a link between Lie''s theory of continuous groups and the theory of finite groups, to the enormous enrichment of both subjects.
The current prize amount is US$8000, awarded in even-numbered years, without restriction on society membership, citizenship, or venue of publication.Most Recent Prize: 2022
The 2022 Chevalley Prize in Lie Theory will be awarded to Xuhua He for his substantial advances in at least three directions of Lie Theory: the study of the cocenter of Hecke algebras of p-adic groups, the study of affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties and the theory of modular representations of semisimple groups.
