The International Stefan Banach Prize for a Doctoral Dissertation in the Mathematical Sciences

is a joint initiative of Ericsson and the Polish Mathematical Society. The prize reflects appreciation of the crucial role played by mathematical reasoning in the contemporary world.

Its aim is to promote and financially support the most promising young researchers in mathematical sciences.

Stefan Banach – the founder of functional analysis and the patron of the prize – symbolizes the values of talent, hard-work and determination. Banach, known also for his talent and unconventional approach to research, rose to prominence as one of the most famous mathematicians in the world. Banach was born in 1892 and spent his youth in Kraków. He studied at the Technical University in Lwów. In 1920, without completing a university level mathematical education, he received the doctoral degree in mathematics from the Jan Kazimierz University in Lwów, where after four years he became a full professor. In 1935 he was invited to deliver a plenary lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Oslo. Shortly before World War II Banach was elected President of the Polish Mathematical Society. Banach died in Lwów in the Summer of 1945.
