abstract = {Atle Selberg was one of the most distinguished number theorists of the twentieth century, having contributed over a long career to our understanding of the primes, through his work in analytic number theory, specifically his results on the Riemann zeta function and on sieves. In 1949 he produced an elementary, but by no means simple, proof of the Prime Number Theorem, which had previously required deep theorems from complex analysis. The mathematical literature abounds in references to his workâthe Selberg sieve, the Selberg trace formula, the Selberg zeta function, the Selberg identity, the Selberg asymptotic formula, and so on.},
