B. Sz.-Nagy Medal

Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal

Year 2010

The Bolyai Institute of the University of Szeged is pleased to announce hereby that the Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal for the year 2010 has been awarded to

Pierre Antoine Grillet, Emeritus Professor of the Tulane University in New Orleans, U.S.A.

Pierre Antoine Grillet has made significant contributions to semigroup theory. His results have provided the structure of regular semigroups, and have considerably expanded the theory of commutative semigroups. He has published 13 definitive research papers in the Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, and an additional one is accepted for publication. Some of these papers continue the research initiated by L. Rédei on congruences of finitely generated commutative semigroups.

The Medal was presented to Pierre Antoine Grillet at 15:00, May 5, 2011 in the Bolyai Institute. On this occasion he delivered a lecture ``Finitely generated commutative semigroups".
