Humboldt Research Award
Provost Chair Professor DINH Tien Cuong from the Department of Mathematics has been elected the recipient of a Humboldt Research Award.
The Humboldt Research Award is conferred in recognition of the award winner’s entire academic record to date whose fundamental discoveries, new theories or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future. The award winner is invited to carry out research projects of his/her own choice in cooperation with specialist colleagues in Germany.
Prof Dinh who has been with the Department since 2004, is considered a leading researcher in Complex Dynamics in higher dimension which is a 30 years old branch of pure mathematics. After the senior founders of the theory, Prof Dinh was one of the first invited speakers for this research domain. He solved several important problems, introduced new concepts and methods to the field. Beside the theory of dynamical systems, Prof Dinh also contributed significantly to other topics such that the theory of foliations, the study of Fekete points, random polynomials and scattering resonances for Schrodinger operators.
Our heartiest congratulations to Prof Dinh!
