Not To Be Confused With the Nobel Prize

Swede Wins $900,000 Math Prize

Lennart Carleson of the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden won the $909,900 Abel Prize for mathematics on Thursday for his problem solving and contributions to advancing the discipline.

Wow, that', two, three zeros...that's like thousands of dollars he won just for being good at math. Luckout!

That's a $900,000 equation right there. Trust me, you don't understand it at all. Few do.
