McMullen, Curtis T. (Personne interviewée) | CIRM (Editeur )

Curtis Tracy McMullen (born 21 May 1958) is Professor of Mathematics at Harvard University. He was awarded the Fields Medal in 1998 for his work in complex dynamics, hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller theory. McMullen graduated as valedictorian in 1980 from Williams College and obtained his Ph.D. in 1985 from Harvard University, supervised by Dennis Sullivan. He held post-doctoral positions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and the Institute for Advanced Study, after which he was on the faculty at Princeton University (1987-1990) and the University of California, Berkeley (1990-1997), before joining Harvard in 1997. He received the Salem Prize in 1991 and was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2007. In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.

Post-edited  Interview at CIRM: Maria Chudnovsky
Chudnovsky, Maria (Personne interviewée) | CIRM (Editeur )

Maria Chudnovsky is a professor in the department of mathematics at Princeton University. She grew up in Russia and Israel, studying at the Technion and received her Ph.D. in 2003 from Princeton under the supervision of Paul Seymour. She moved to Columbia after being a Clay Mathematics Institute research fellow and assistant professor at Princeton. Chudnovsky's contributions to graph theory include the proof of the strong perfect graph theorem with Robertson, Seymour and Thomas characterizing perfect graphs as being exactly the graphs with no odd induced cycles of length at least 5 or their complements. Other research contributions of Chudnovsky include co-authorship of the first polynomial time algorithm for recognizing perfect graphs and of a structural characterization of the claw-free graphs.

Post-edited  Interview at CIRM: Hans Feichtinger
Feichtinger, Hans G. (Personne interviewée) | CIRM (Editeur )

The Jean Morlet Chair is a scientific collaboration between CIRM -CNRS-SMF-, Aix-Marseille Université and the City of Marseille. Two international calls are launched every year to attract innovative researchers in an area of mathematical sciences. Selected candidates who must come from a foreign institution can spend a semester in residence at CIRM, where they run a full program of mathematical events in collaboration with a local project holder. Hans-Georg Feichtinger (University of Vienna) and Bruno Torresani (I2M Marseille) have been in charge of the second semester 2014 which will end in January 2015. The focus is on 'Computational Time-Frequency and Coorbit Theory'. Starting with a Research in Pairs event at the end of August, then three larger events-a School for young scientists, a main Conference and Small group- rather close in dates to enable participants to stay for more than one event, their semester will end on a second Research in Pairs in January 2015 and a celebratory event at the very end of the semester to celebrate 30 years of wavelets.

Post-edited  Interview at CIRM: Peter Scholze
Scholze, Peter (Personne interviewée) | CIRM (Editeur )

Peter Scholze became known as a mathematician after finishing his Bachelor's degree in three semesters and his Master's degree in two further semesters. Scholze's subsequent PhD-thesis on Perfectoid spaces yields the solution to a special case of the weight-monodromy conjecture.
He was made full professor shortly after completing his PhD, the youngest full professor in Germany.
Since July 2011 Scholze is a Fellow of the Clay Mathematics Institute. In 2012 he was awarded the Prix and Cours Peccot. He was awarded the 2013 SASTRA Ramanujan Prize. In 2014 he received the Clay Research Award. In 2015 he will be awarded the Frank Nelson Cole Prize in Algebra, and also the Ostrowski Prize.
According to the University of Bonn and to his peers, Peter is one of the most brilliant researchers in his field...
