Abstract: In this talk, Prof Zhang describes recent work of Prof Ye Tian (Morningside Center of Mathematics, Chinese Academy Sciences) who produced a large class of congruent numbers with arbitrary many prime factors.
Prof Zhang's research areas include number theory and arithmetic algebraic geometry. He is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Algebraic Geometry, Journal of Differential Geometry, and Science in China, among other publications.
Prof Zhang was an invited speaker of the International Congress of Mathematicians at Berlin in 1998 and was awarded a Morningside Gold Medal of Mathematics in the same year by the International Congress of Chinese Mathematicians for his work on the Bogomolov conjecture and Gross-Zagier formula. He was a Sloan Research Fellow, a Guggenheim Fellow, a L.-K. Hua Chair Professor at Chinese Academy of Sciences, a Changjiang Chair Professor at Tsinghua University, and a Prize Fellow at Clay Mathematical Institute. In 2011, he was elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
