math and sci / eng[edit]

Category is advisedly categorized redundantly: both in "Awards by subject" and in "Awards by subject" > "Science and engineering prizes". This is because some people think of mathematics as a subfield of sci & eng; others think of it as separate. --lquilter 06:44, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Persons or subject[edit]

Most of the subcategories actually seem to enumerate laureates. Hence, I think that they should be found within the Category:Mathematicians rooted category subtree. The most simple way to achieve this would be to put this Category:Mathematics awards directly as a subcategory to Category:Mathematicians. However, this is not 100% accurate, since there are also some articles about the prizes rather than the prize winners. Does this matter?-JoergenB (talk) 21:35, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

The subcategories of award-winners should probably be in a subcategory called "Category:Winners of mathematics awards; that could be in Category:Mathematicians and Category:Mathematics awards and Category:Award winners. (However, I have to also say that most award-winner categories get deleted when they come to CFD-ers attention. --Lquilter (talk) 23:48, 10 January 2008 (UTC)


I propose the creation of a subcategory called

    Awards of the London Mathematical Society

with eight members. SoSivr (talk) 12:30, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
