prix Jacques Neveu goes to Pierre Jacob!

My former student Pierre Jacob (now at NUS in Singapore and soon in Oxford, England) got the 2012 PhD thesis Jacques Neveu prize. (Jacques Neveu, French probabilist specialist of Markov chains, was also the founder of the SMAI Probability and Statistics branch, which is why this prize is named after him. SMAI is the French version of SIAM.) As a coincidence, Pierre also got the PhD prize of Fondation Dauphine last week… Great news! And well-deserved rewards.
