About Shinichi Mochizuki

Shinichi Mochizuki (望月 新一?, born March 29, 1969) is a Japanese mathematician specializing in number theory.[2] He works in arithmetic geometry, Hodge theory, and anabelian geometry, and he introduced p-adic Teichmüller theory, Hodge–Arakelov theory, Frobenioids, and inter-universal Teichmüller theory. He was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1998.[3] In August 2012, Mochizuki released what is claimed to be a proof of the abc conjecture; however, the claimed proof is very long and complex and is still being verified for correctness by other mathematicians.[2][4][5] Contents [hide] 1 Life 2 Publications 3 References 4 External links Life [edit]

When he was five years old, Shinichi Mochizuki and his family left Japan to live in New York City. Mochizuki attended Phillips Exeter Academy and graduated in 1985.[6] He entered Princeton University as an undergraduate at age 16 and graduated salutatorian in 1988.[6] He then received a Ph.D. under the supervision of Gerd Faltings at age 23.[1] He joined the Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Kyoto University in 1992 and was promoted to professor in 2002.[1] Publications [edit]
