The **Wolf Prize in Mathematics** is awarded almost annually by the Wolf Foundation in Israel. It is one of the six Wolf Prizes established by the Foundation and awarded since 1978; the others are in Agriculture, Chemistry, Medicine, Physics and Arts. Until the establishment of the Abel Prize, the Prize was probably the closest equivalent of a "Nobel Prize in Mathematics", since the more prestigious Fields Medal is only awarded every 4 years to mathematicians under 40.

—George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

“A *wolf* does not kill another *wolf*.”

—Estonian proverb, trans by Ilse Lehiste (1993)

“To a maiden true he’ll give his hand,

Hey lillie, ho lillie lallie,

To the king’s daughter o’ fair England,

To a *prize* that was won by a slain brother’s brand,

I’ the brave nights so early.”

—Unknown. Earl Brand (l. 67–71)
