**Fernando Codá Marques**

The 2012 Ramanujan Prize, awarded jointly by

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics

The Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund,

and The International Mathematical Union

We take pleasure in announcing that the 2012 Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries will be awarded to Professor Fernando Codá Marques (32), Instituto Nacional de Matematica Pura e Aplicada. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Prize is in recognition of his several outstanding contributions to Differential Geometry. Together with his coauthors, Fernando Coda Marques has solved long standing open problems, and obtained important results, including results on the Yamabe problem, the complete solution of Schoen's conjecture, counterexamples to the rigidity conjecture of Min-Oo, connectivity of the space of positive curvature metrics on an orientable 3-manifold, and most recently, a proof of the Willmore conjecture.

The Selection Committee consisted of Ngo Bao Chau, Helge Holden, Maria Jose Pacifico, Vasudevan Srinivas and Lothar Goettsche (chair). The Prize is supported financially be the Norwegian Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund, with the participation of the International Mathematical Union.
