2010 American Mathematical Society prizes

The 2010 American Mathematical Society prizes just got awarded at the Joint Math Meetings.

The recipients include my Oxford colleague Marcus du Sautoy (who won the JPBM Communications Award) and Carlos Castillo Chavez (who I know from Cornell---I used to TA in the REU program he runs), who won the Award for Distinguished Public Service in recognition of his gargantuan outreach efforts. This is true of some of the other awards as well (and there are several on which I don't know enough to have an opinion), but I wanted to highlight these two as rather richly deserved and also because of my connection to the recipients.
