No surprises here, unlike in 2018. Huh's award is further proof that the best way to win a Fields Medal in combinatorics is to connect it to other disciplines. Maynard is the one whose work will be most familiar to readers of this forum. He is most well-known for his proof that there are infinitely many pairs of primes separated by at most 600, but he has many other important and interesting results about prime numbers - for example he has proved that for every digit there are infinitely many primes that do not contain that digit.

Maynard's result of 600 is good, but not the best so far. Have a nice day. Matt

Maynard's 600 was the best known bound at the time, and all the subsequent better bounds from Polymath were based on his work. His paper was also the first to show there are interval sizes that must contain 3, 4, 5... primes infinitely often.
