Grigori Perelman is an eminent Russian mathematician who won all-Russian mathematical Olympiad.

He is known for making a monumental contribution to geometric topology and Riemannian geometry. To honor his services to the discipline of mathematics he was awarded several accolades but he turned them down.

His mother was studying mathematics but upon his birth she abandoned her goal to raise him. From an early age, Perelman exhibited distinguished inclination toward mathematics.


As his mother realized his potential, she enrolled him in a mathematics training program run by Sergei Rukshin. He also went to a specialized school with advanced perelamn program. He excelled in all academic disciplines except in physical co-curricular activities.

Grigori Perelman – Mathematician Biography, Contributions and Facts

Perelman achieved a perfect score and won a gold medal for his stellar performance. For his advanced studies in mathematics Perelman went to the Leningrad State University and was enrolled without entrance exam. He received his doctorate degree in and afterwards joined Leningrad Department of Steklov Institute of Mathematics for work. Upon strong recommendation of Mikhail Gritory, a notable geometer, Perelman was landed jobs in several American universities as a researcher. There he worked on manifolds with lower bounds on Ricci curvature and later accepted a two-year fellowship of Miller Research at the University of California.

IMPA – Grigori Perelman – Invisible genius

It states that any closed three-dimensional manifold when contracted at one point is a three-sphere topologically. InEuropean Congress of Mathematics selected Perelman to offer a prize for his proving soul conjecture which he openly turned down. The Fields Man is one of the prestigious accolades awarded to under 40 mathematicians for their indelible work. Perelman perelmzn his geometrical work was awarded one in However, he declined the award showing his indifference to money and fame.


Once again he declined a hefty amount of one million dollars in prize. He claimed that the decision to offer him the prize was unfair as Richard S.

Hamilton actually pioneered the Ricci flow with the purpose of attacking the conjecture. The long list of declined awards and prize also includes another prestigious prize by European Mathematical Society.
