Lennart Carleson is a world-leading mathematician who has made fundamental contributions to a branch of mathematics known as harmonic analysis. His research highlights include demonstrating the almost everywhere convergence of Fourier series for square-integrable functions, as well as contributions to the corona theorem.
Through his work on the corona theorem, he was able to develop the theory of Carleson measures, which has become a useful tool for modern function theory. Alongside his research, Lennart has served as both Editor of the distinguished journal Acta Mathematica and as President of the International Mathematical Union. He is also the author of a number of influential books.
For profound and seminal contributions to harmonic analysis and the theory of smooth dynamical systems.
For his deep and fundamental contributions to mathematics in the field of analysis and complex dynamics. His most spectacular achievement was the proof of the convergence almost everywhere of the Fourier Series of square integrable and continuous function
