You solved a problem in Graph theory that was over 40 years old. Could you briefly explain this problem to us? How did the magic moment happen? Was it sudden or did it come progressively? Where were you then? Were you alone? How does one feel in such a moment? What happens in the life of a mathematician once you have solved such a problem? What made you choose math? Was it something that happened in your childhood or maybe at school? A woman in a men's world. Have you met any difficulty? What would your advice be to give girls a taste for mathematics? It's you first time at CIRM. How do you feel about being here?

Résumé : 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.
