Fermat Prize 2015 awarded to Laure Saint-Raymond and to Peter Scholze

The laureates of the Fermat Prize 2015 are:
Laure Saint-Raymond (École Normale Supérieure, Paris), for the development of asymptotic theories of partial differential equations, including the fluid limits of rarefied flows, multiscale analysis in plasma physics equations and ocean modeling, and the derivation of the Boltzmann equation from interacting particle systems.
Peter Scholze (Universität Bonn), for his invention of perfectoid spaces and their application to fundamental problems in algebraic geometry and in the theory of automorphic forms.
