The Jaroslav and Barbara Zemánek Prize in functional analysis with emphasis on operator theory for 2021 is awarded to Jochen Glück (University of Passau, Germany) for his work on one-parameter operator semigroups and their various applications, along with several outstanding contributions to general operator theory. The Jury emphasized his deep and elegant results regarding the existence of dilations of Banach space contractions and on the existence of spectral gaps for hyperbounded operators on LpL^p-spaces.

Following a generous donation of Zemánek's family, the annual Zemánek's Prize was founded by the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IM PAN) in March 2018, in order to encourage the research in functional analysis, operator theory and related topics. The Prize is established to promote young mathematicians, under 35 years of age, who made important contributions to the field.

The awarding ceremony will take place at IM PAN, Warsaw, in Fall 2021.
