## Fermat Prize of the Université Paul Sabatier

The

**Fermat Prize**is awarded to a mathematician for decisive research in those fields to which Pierre de Fermat contributed, namely: Statements of Variational Principles; Foundations of Probability and Analytical Geometry; and Number Theory. The main aim is to reward those whose researches are accessible to the greatest number of professional mathematicians within these fields.
