## Special Lecture : Shing-Tung Yau (Harvard University)

Date: | March 10, 2008, 15:00 - 16:00 |

Place: | Lecture Hall, Mathematical Sciences Building, Komaba Campus, The University of Tokyo. |

Speaker: | Shing-Tung Yau (Harvard University) |

Title: | Geometric analysis and their applications in mathematics and theoretical physics |

Abstract: | Over last ten years or so, we have seen many important developments in
mathematics and theoretical physics, which appeared from deep interactions
between them. As a special lecture of IPMU Komaba seminar, we have asked
Professor Shing-Tung Yau to survey recent developments in geometry
and physics. Professor Yau received the Fields Medal from the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1982. He also received the Oswald Veblen Prize from the American Mathematical Society (1981), the John J. Carty Award from the US National Academy of Sciences (1981), the MacArthur Foundation Fellowship Prize (1985), the Humboldt Research Award (1991), the Crafoord Prize (1994), and the US National Medal of Science (1997). |
