Stefan Bergman Prize 2020 Aline Bonami; Peter Ebenfelt

Aline Bonami of Université d'Orléans and Peter Ebenfelt of the University of California, San Diego, have been awarded the 2020 Bergman Prizes.

Aline Bonami receives the Bergman Prize for her highly influential contributions to several complex variables and analytic spaces. She is being especially recognized for her fundamental work on the Bergman and Szegö projections and their corresponding spaces of holomorphic functions. Bonami's work has had long-lasting impact on the theory of several complex variables, operator theory, and harmonic analysis, and it continues to be a strong influence on present-day research in all these fields.

Peter Ebenfelt is awarded the Bergman Prize for his many important contributions to several complex variables, CR geometry, and partial differential equations. He is being recognized for his foundational and innovative results on mappings in CR geometry, his study of rigidity problems, and new insights into the Bergman kernel function. Ebenfelt's pioneering work has had deep influences on the theory of several complex variables, CR geometry, and geometric analysis and serves as an inspiration for a generation of junior mathematicians.

Stefan Bergman Prize 2019 Franc Forstneric; Mei-Chi Shaw

The 2019 Bergman Prizes have been awarded to **Franc Forstneric **of the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and **Mei-Chi Shaw **of the University of Notre Dame.

**Franc Forstneric**** **is awarded the Bergman Prize for his many contributions to several complex variables (SCV), as well as complex geometry and geometric analysis. He is being recognized for his foundational work on mapping problems for domains in complex spaces and more general complex manifolds, approximation theory in SCV, the development of the Oka principle, and complex analysis methods in the theory of minimal surfaces.

**Mei-Chi Shaw** is awarded the Bergman Prize for her many contributions to several complex variables, partial differential equations, and Cauchy-Riemann geometry. She is being especially recognized for her seminal work on the analysis of the $\bar\partial$ and $\bar\partial_{b}$ problems in settings where the ambient domain or ambient manifold is nonsmooth, which provides deep insight on the bearing of boundary regularity in the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the problems.

Stefan Bergman Prize 2018 Johannes Sjostrand

The 2018 Bergman Prize recipient is **Johannes Sjostrand**, University of Bourgogne.

Sjostrand is recognized for his fundamental work on the Bergman and Szegő kernels, as well as for his numerous fundamental contributions to microlocal analysis, spectral theory, and partial differential equations (PDEs). He is especially being recognized for his groundbreaking work with L. Boutet de Monvel on describing the singularities and asymptotics of the Bergman and Szegő kernels in strictly pseudoconvex domains in $\Bbb{C}^n$. This work has been highly influential in subsequent developments on these and related topics.

Stefan Bergman Prize 2014 Takeo Ohsawa; Slawomir Kolodziej

To Takeo Ohsawa of Nagoya University and Sławomir Kołodziej of Jagiellonian University. Ohsawa's work has led to important advances in a wide variety of areas, including local structure of plurisubharmonic functions, invariance of plurigenera, multiplier ideal sheaves, and estimates for the Bergman kernel. Kołodziej is recognized for his seminal contributions to the complex Monge-Ampère equation and pluripotential theory, including necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of bounded solutions, stability, and other sharp estimates.
