John Milnor Wins Abel Prize

John Milnor has won the 2011 Abel Prize, which is a lifetime achievement award (meant to parallel the Nobel Prizes) in mathematics. You can read more about Milnor's work here.

Milnor is known for his work in several areas of mathematics, including dynamical systems (which is near and dear to my heart, as many of you know).
