【本報訊】華人科學家再次揚威海外,國際知名數學家丘成桐因成功攻破「卡拉比猜想( Calabi Conjecture)」,摘下 09年沃爾夫數學獎( Wolf prize in Mathematics),是繼陳省身後第二位奪獎的華人。丘成桐現時身在哈佛大學擔任講座教授,對得獎感到十分高興,他向本報表示將在 3月中回港,期後與太太前往以色列,出席 5月 13日的頒獎禮。
沃爾夫獎由外交家、實業家及慈善家沃爾夫於 1976年成立的沃爾夫基金會所頒發,範圍包括化學、數學、醫學等,每年評選一次,其中數學獎的重要性僅次於菲爾茲數學獎( Fields Medal),以色列總統將於今年 5月在當地頒發有關獎項,每個範疇的其中一名得獎者將發表短講。

早在 82年取得菲爾茲數學獎的丘成桐,昨日收到評審委員會的電郵,對於得獎十分高興,「 It has been a good prize(這是個極佳獎項),以前得獎嘅都係十分好嘅科學家,包括我老師陳省身。」


想不到香港數學家又得獎了, 可惜JOHN NG不上來九濟堂, 否則就有故事聽了.
