B. Sz.-Nagy Medal

Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal

The Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal was founded in 1999 by Erzsébet Szőkefalvi-Nagy in memory of her father Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy, who served as Editor-in-Chief of the Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum from 1946 to 1981.

The wrought silver medal is of diameter 42.5 mm; its upper side depicts the portrait of Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy; its backside contains the name of the winner, surrounded by the inscription 'Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum'.

The Medal is awarded annually by the Bolyai Institute to honour a distinguished mathematician who has published significant, deep results in these Acta.
