From UChicagoNews:

Ngô had to master a great deal of mathematics in order to prove the fundamental lemma, said Peter Constantin, Mathematics Department Chairman and Louis Block Distinguished Service Professor at UChicago. "His very original achievement builds on the combination of decades of work by many great mathematicians," Constantin said. "It is deep, pure mathematics and has relevance to the world, including high-energy physics, computer science and cryptography."
