About Shinichi Mochizuki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/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 padic Teichmüller theory, Hodge–Arakelov theory, Frobenioids, and interuniversal 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]
