Th 1995 CRM-Fields Prize awarded to H.S.M. Coxeter

The first CRM-Fields Prize was given to Professor H.S.M. Coxeter of the University of Toronto. On September 22, 1995, Prof. Coxeter gave his lecture “Evolution of Coxeter-Dynkin Diagrams”. He was awarded his prize by director Luc Vinet. Prof. Coxeter gave another talk for undergraduates. In an overcrowded hall, with people standing along the walls and sitting on the floor, Prof. Coxeter gave a lecture entitled “Euler’s formula for polyhedra.” It is an experience that will be remembered by many young mathematicians.
