B. Sz.-Nagy Medal

Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal

Year 2003

The Bolyai Institute of the University of Szeged is pleased to announce hereby that the Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal for the year 2003 has been awarded to

George Grätzer, Professor of the University of Manibota, Canada.

Since 1957, George Grätzer published nineteen definitive papers in the Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum. In these papers he solved several hard problems and proved many deep results in universal algebra and lattice theory. The classical Grätzer--Schmidt Theorem characterizing congruence lattices of algebras, published here exactly forty years ago, is worth separate mentioning.

The Medal was presented to George Grätzer at 14:00, May 13, 2004 in the Bolyai Institute. On this occasion he delivered a lecture ``Nice lattices".
