Mathematics Professor Awarded for Great Research

With about six to seven research projects in his queue each year, Dr. Pace Nielsen in the BYU Department of Mathematics has made waves in the mathematics community. One of his most recent projects was a massive collaboration (unusual in mathematics) with a number of world-class researchers, studying the spacing of prime numbers. They proved there are infinitely many pairs of primes within 246 integers of each other.
