Gérard Laumon (French: [lomɔ̃]; born 1952) is a French mathematician, best known for his results in number theory, for which he was awarded the Clay Research Award.

Life and work[edit]

Laumon studied at the École Normale Supérieure and Paris-Sud 11 University, Orsay.[1] He was awarded the Silver Medal of the CNRS in 1987, and the E. Dechelle prize of the French Academy of the Sciences in 1992.[2]

In 2004, Laumon and Ngô Bảo Châu received the Clay Research Award for the proof of the fundamental lemma for unitary groups, a component in the Langlands program in number theory.

In 2012, he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[3]
