|The Frank Nelson Cole Prize, or Cole Prize for short, is one of two prizes awarded to mathematicians by the American Mathematical Society, one for an outstanding contribution to algebra, and the other for an outstanding contribution to number theory. The prize is named after Frank Nelson Cole, who served the Society for 25 years. The first award for algebra was made in 1928 to L. E. Dickson, for his book Algebren und ihre Zahlentheorie, Orell FÃƒÂ¼ssli, ZÃƒÂ¼rich and Leipzig, 1927, while the first award for number theory was made in 1931 to H. S. Vandiver, for papers dealing with Fermat's last theorem. Although eligibility for the prize is not fully international, they are awarded to members of the Society and those who publish outstanding work in leading American journals.|
