The slides from Marcus Emmanuel Barnes' M.Sc. thesis defense presentation.
Abstract:
Every four years at the International Congress of Mathematicians the prestigious Fields medals, the mathematical equivalent of a Nobel prize, are awarded. The following question is often asked: who was Fields and what did he do mathematically? This question will be addressed by sketching the life and mathematical work of John Charles Fields (1863 – 1932), the Canadian mathematician who helped establish the awards and after whom the medals are named.
