Pólya Prize

Main content

The Pólya Prize was established in 1977 thanks to a donation by Stella and George Pólya. It is awarded annually and honours outstanding graduates of the Bachelor's degree programmes in mathematics and physics. The prizewinners receive a copy of George Pólya's book "Mathematics and plausible reasoning" signed by the Chair of the Department.

George Pólya (1887-1985) was a Hungarian mathematician and professor of mathematics at ETH Zurich from 1914 to 1940 (History).
