Let's start with your first steps with math...Could you describe your childhood? Was your personal environment a factor enable to reach your capacity? Is it easy or complicated to be and infant prodigy? Which persons influenced you the most? Now let' talk about your research. Could you please describe the areas of mathematics you focus on? Could you comment on the results you are most fond? Could you describe your first "Eureka moment"? 2006, Fields Medal. Could you talk about the result for which you received this prestigious distinction? 2012, a partial solution to the Goldbach conjecture...Could you tell us more about it? You said you met Paul Erdös when you were 10... Do you remember this amazing meeting? Could you tell us about your way of working, of thinking? Alone? With others? In which context do you solve problems? What do you enjoy most about math? What research problems are you likely to explore in the future? How do you feel about being here at Cirm? What do you think of this place?

Résumé : Terence Tao (born 17 July 1975) is an Australian-American mathematician who has worked in various areas of mathematics. He currently focuses on harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, algebraic combinatorics, arithmetic combinatorics, geometric combinatorics, compressed sensing and analytic number theory. As of 2015, he holds the James and Carol Collins chair in mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles. Tao was a co-recipient of the 2006 Fields Medal and the 2014 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics.
