The London Mathematical Society welcomes nominations for the 2015 prizes, to recognise and celebrate achievements in and contributions to mathematics. The prizes for 2015 are as follows:
- The Polya Prize - recognising contribution to mathematics within the UK
- The Senior Whitehead Prize - influence on or service to mathematics
- The Naylor Prize and Lectureship - for contributions to applied mathematics
- The Berwick Prize - for outstanding research published by the LMS in the last eight years
- The Whitehead Prizes - for work in and influence on mathematics.
This year also includes two new prizes:
- The Shephard Prize - for contributions to mathematics with a strong intuitive component which can be explained to those with little or no knowledge of university mathematics
- The Anne Bennett Prize - for work inspiring women mathematicians
Awarded to mark the LMS 150th anniversary:
- The Hirst Prize and lectureship for the History of Mathematics
