The Alfred Ackermann–Teubner Memorial Award for the Promotion of Mathematical Sciences recognized work in mathematical analysis. It was established in 1912 by engineer Alfred Ackermann-Teubner (1857-01-31 – 1940),[1] and was an endowment of the University of Leipzig.[2]

The first award was made in 1914.[3] Subsequent awards were to be made every other year until a surplus of 60,000 marks was accumulated within the endowment, at which time, the prize was to be awarded annually. The subjects included:[4]

Honorees[edit]

The fifteen honorees between 1914 and 1941 are:[5]

Jurists[edit]

In 1937, Constantin Carathéodory and Erhard Schmidt were invited to jury the award.[18] Along with Wilhelm Blaschke, Carathéodory was invited again in 1944 by the German Union of Mathematicians.[19]
