2013 Ramanujan Prize Announced

17/06/2013 - Trieste, Italy

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics
(ICTP), and the International Mathematical Union (IMU) take
pleasure in announcing that the 2013 Ramanujan Prize for Young
Mathematicians from Developing Countries will be awarded to
Professor Ye Tian, Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science,
Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The prize is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to
Number Theory. These include the completion of the proof of a
multiplicity one conjecture for local theta correspondences and
important work related to Heegner points and to the Birch and
Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture: the non-existence of points on
twisted Fermat curves, and recently remarkable progress on the
congruent number problem, showing the existence of infinitely many
congruent numbers with arbitrarily many prime factors.

The Selection Committee consisted of Augustin Banyaga, Ngô B?o
Châu, Zhi-Ming Ma, and

Lothar Göttsche (Chair). The Prize is funded jointly by ICTP and
the IMU.

ICTP is governed by UNESCO, IAEA, and Italy, and is a UNESCO Category 1 Institute
