The Abel Prize /ˈɑːbəl/ (Norwegian: Abelprisen) is a Norwegian prize awarded every year by the Government of Norway to one or more outstanding mathematicians.^{[1]} It is named after Norwegian mathematician Niels Henrik Abel (1802–1829) and modelled after the Nobel Prizes,^{[2]}^{[3]}^{[4]}^{[5]}^{[6]}^{[7]}^{[8]} the award was established in 2001 by the Government of Norway and complements its sister prize in the humanities, the Holberg Prize.
It comes with a monetary award of 6 million Norwegian kroner (NOK) (around €650,000).^{[9]}
