Congratulations to Subhash Khot for Nevanlinna Prize
I am delighted by the news that Subhash Khot was awarded the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize. I am reminded of a time (many years ago) when Robert Krauthgamer and I were arguing about one of Subhash’s papers if it is more of a Complexity Theory paper or more of an Algorithms paper. While this was a foolish argument then (and even more so now), it reflected our joint excitement by that work.
This is also a good opportunity to recall Boaz’ post on the unique game and other conjectures.
