Shing-Tung Yau Mathematical Talents Class

With the full support from Professor Shing-Tung Yau and other international renowned mathematicians, the Center of Mathematical Sciences (CMS) and the department of mathematics in Zhejiang University established Shing-Tung Yau Mathematical Talents Class. The internationally advanced cultivation model is applied and the cultivation scheme and materials adopted in the undergraduate education of the department of mathematics in Harvard University can also find their way in the pivot education and personalized teaching of Shing-Tung Yau Mathematical Talents Class. Besides, students are also selected to go the study abroad with the purpose of broaden the international horizon. Yau Class plans to foster elite with outstanding mathematical talents and best general qualities, who are expected to receive undergraduate education meeting the international first rate within four years. The expert committee will select and recommend a number of outstanding graduates to go to study for the doctor degree in Harvard University, Stanford University, Princeton University, MIT, Yale University, Columbia University and etc.

Professor Shing-Tung Yau, Director of CMS in Zhejiang University, thinks “Mathematics lays the foundation of all subjects, so that the cultivation of mathematical talents is a matter of national great causes”. Professor Kefeng Liu, the executive director of CMS also points out that “We not only created a favorable academic atmosphere in CMS, a real mathematical heaven now, but also cultivate excellent mathematical talents for China. As Professor Yau has proposed, we will found Chinese Youngster Mathematical and Scientific Awards ”, which will provide great help to the recruitment and education of Shing-Tung Yau Mathematical Talents Class.

The expert committee of Shing-Tung Yau Mathematical Talents Class consists of:

Shing-Tung Yau, Director of the expert committee.He is the recipient of the top mathematics award- the Fields Medal, the Crafoord Prize (awarded every seven years by Royal Swedish Academy in fields that are not covered by the Nobel Prizes) and National Medal of Science. He is now a member of National Academy of Sciences and a foreign member of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He is a chair professor of Harvard University and the director of CMS in Zhejiang University.

Kefeng Liu, Executive Director of the Expert Committee. He is the recipient of the Morningside Gold Medal, the top mathematics award for Chinese mathematicians, and Guggenheim Fellowship. Besides, he is the chief editor of the international first class journal “Communications in Analysis and Geometry” and an invited speaker of ICM. He is a professor of UCLA and the first Guangbiao chair professor in Zhejiang University. He also takes posts of the executive director of CMS and the director of the department of mathematics in Zhejiang University.
