The 2021 Sophie Germain/Institut de France Foundation prize has been awarded to our colleague Étienne Fouvry.
We are saddened to learn of the death of our colleague, Professor Emeritus Nessim Sibony, who once headed the LMO, and also the Harmonic Analysis team.
After important works in Several Complex Variables, holomorphic convexity, positive currents, invariant metrics, and d-bar analysis, Nessim Sibony pivoted to Multidimensional Holomorphic Dynamics, a field that he truly founded in France. His famous collaborations with John Erik Fornaess, and then Tien-Cuong Dinh, punctuated the development of this field with remarkable results.
