## The Anna and Lajos Erdős Prize in Mathematics

This prize was first awarded in 1977 and was, at that time, known as the

**Erdős Prize**. The name was changed in 1996 to the

**Anna and Lajos Erdős Prize**reflecting the original wish of Paul Erdős. Anna and Lajos Erdös were Paul Erdős's parents. The prize is awarded to an Israeli mathematician in an institution of higher education in Israel, in the fields of theoretical mathematics or computer science, who was under the age of 41 as of 31 May in the award year. The chairman of the jury making the award is appointed by the Committee of the Israel Mathematical Union. The prize is awarded at the Union's annual conference and the recipient is invited to lecture on their work to that conference. We give the list of winners of this prize below:
