Grigori Perelman

1 In June 2006, the [Asian Journal of Mathematics] published a paper by [Xi-Ping Zhu] of [Sun Yat-sen University] in [China] and [Huai-Dong Cao] of [Lehigh University] in [Pennsylvania] , giving a complete description of Perelman's proof of the Poincaré and the geometrization conjectures. [Asian Journal of Mathematics] Volume 10, Number 2 Cao and Zhu.
2 In July 2006, [John Morgan] of Columbia University and [Gang Tian] of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology posted a paper on the arXiv titled, "Ricci Flow and the Poincaré Conjecture". In this paper, they provide a detailed version of Perelman's proof of the Poincaré conjecture.John W. Morgan, Gang Tian Ricci Flow and the Poincaré Conjecture On 24 August 2006, Morgan delivered a lecture at the [ICM] in Madrid on the Poincaré conjecture. This was followed up with the paper on the arXiv, "Completion of the Proof of the Geometrization Conjecture" on 24 September 2008.John W. Morgan, Gang Tian Completion of the Proof of the Geometrization Conjecture

A separate check was also performed by Richard Hamilton with Gerhard Huisken and Tom Ilmanen. Giving the first plenary lecture at the ICM2006, he said, "I am enormously grateful with Grisha for doing this".

[Nigel Hitchin] , professor of mathematics at Oxford University, has said that "I think for many months or even years now people have been saying they were convinced by the argument. I think it's a done deal."Randerson.

The Fields Medal and Millennium Prize
In May 2006, a committee of nine mathematicians voted to award Perelman a [Fields Medal] for his work on the Poincaré conjecture. The Fields Medal is the highest award in mathematics; two to four medals are awarded every four years.
