## Ribenboim Prize for Andrew Granville

The Canadian Number Theory Association (CNTA) has established a prize
for distinguished research in number theory to be awarded to a
mathematician who is Canadian or has connections to Canadian
mathematics. The prize, to be called the Ribenboim Prize, will normally
be awarded every four years in conjunction with a CNTA meeting. The
prize winner will receive a certificate and medal and will give a
plenary talk at the associated CNTA meeting. Normally the prize winner
will have received his or her Ph.D. within the last 12 years. The first
prize will be awarded at the
1999 CNTA meeting to

Professor Andrew Granville
of the University of Georgia. Professor Granville was a Ph.D. student of
Paulo Ribenboim from 1984-1987. Since his graduation from
Queen's University
he has published over 70 papers on a large variety of number
theoretic subjects in such diverse areas as: diophantine equations,
combinatorial number theory, analytic number theory, algebraic number
theory, and computational number theory. His articles are without
exception characterized by an imaginative approach and an obvious love
of the subject matter. Furthermore, they are deep and fundamental
contributions to number theory. Perhaps, he is best known for his work
with Alford and Pomerance in showing that there exists an infinitude of
Carmichael numbers. This problem had resisted resolution for over
seventy years.
