“Michael Hill, Michael Hopkins, and Douglas Ravenel will receive the 2022 AMS Oswald Veblen Prize in Geometry for their paper “On the nonexistence of elements of Kervaire invariant one.” This paper solved a 50-year-old problem in geometric topology by showing that framed manifolds with Kervaire invariant one can only exist in finitely many dimensions, introducing deeply influential new ideas and techniques in algebraic topology.”
