On tonight's Jeopardy, the last clue in a category about awards referred to the Fermat Prize. The clue was something like "The Fermat prize is given in this field for work involving 'variational principles'" (I don't have the exact wording). The question, of course, is "What is mathematics?"
Now, I didn't know there was such a prize. It turns out that it's awarded for work in any of the following three fields in which Fermat's work was important: "Statements of Variational Principles", "Foundations of Probability and Analytical Geometry", or "Number theory". From the past prize winners it looks like it's been awarded in all of those categories, although when I heard the clue it sounded like the prize was only awarded for work in the calculus of variations. (Sometime in the next couple days, the exact wording should be available at the Jeopardy! archive.)
Also, Alex Trebek pronounced the "t" in Fermat. No.
And the second-to-last clue in the same category asked for the subject in which the Turing Award is given. (I'd never heard of that award, either, but the answer is obvious if -- and probably only if -- you've heard of Turing.)
