The International Mathematical Union renames its Nevanlinna Prize (given every four years to major accomplishments in theoretical computer science; see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nevanlin) to the IMU Abacus Medal: scilogs.spektrum.de/hlf/imu-ab

The article doesn't say why but it's because Nevanlinna was a Nazi sympathizer and collaborator. The prize was named after him in the early 1980s because its funding came from Finland, but Nevanlinna also never had much to do with TCS.

A Mastodon instance for maths people. The kind of people who make $\pi z^2 \times a$ jokes.
