Donaldson received the Junior Whitehead Prize from the London Mathematical Society in 1985 and in the following year he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and, also in 1986, he received a Fields Medal.

 Simon Donaldson Summary
Simon Donaldson shocked the mathematical world during the 1980s with a series of papers on the structure of four-dimensional spaces.
Donaldson's work was based, in part, on the work of French mathematician Jules Henri Poincaré's (1854-1912) system of classifying manifolds that contain local coordinate systems that are related to each other by coordinate transformations belonging to a specified class.
Donaldson's important discoveries regarding the unique applications of instantons were substantially based on equations used in quantum mechanics—for example, equations published by physicists Chen Ning Yang (1922-) and Robert L. Mills—that were originally derived from the fundamental electromagnetic equations put forth by Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879).

 A Revolution in Mathematics
For the past decade or so, one of the main tools for understanding such questions has been a theory developed by the mathematician Simon Donaldson (Oxford University) and based on ideas from gauge theory in physics.
While Donaldson theory produced some spectacular results, it was from technically extremely difficult.
When the Seiberg-Witten equations burst onto the scene in the fall of 1994, mathematicians were well prepared to put the new tools to immediate use: they had already cut their teeth on the much more difficult theory of Donaldson.

However, there were still questions relating to whether Douglas's solution, which was known to be a smooth immersed surface, is actually embedded.
In their joint paper On the existence of Hermitian Yang-Mills connections in stable bundles (1986), Yau and Karen Uhlenbeck gave a solution of higher-dimensional versions of the Hitchin-Kobayashi conjecture, extending work of Simon Donaldson.
In 1981 Yau was awarded The Oswald Veblen Prize in Geometry, in 1994 the Crafoord Prize of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and in 1997 the National Medal of Science.
