2014年度邵逸夫数学科学奖颁予 George Lusztig

以表彰他在代数, 代数几何和表示论方面作出了基础性的贡献, 并将这些学科结合起来, 解决古典问题, 且展现数学中美妙的新联系.

George Lusztig, 1946 年于罗马尼亚蒂米甚瓦拉出生, 现为美国麻省理工学院Abdun-Nur 数学讲座教授. 1968年于罗马尼亚布加勒斯特大学毕业, 1971年于美国普林斯顿大学取得硕士和博士学位. 1971年至1977年于英国华威大学任教, 1974年成为教授. 自1978年起, 他一直在麻省理工学院兼职教授. 2005年获罗马尼亚科学院数学研究所授予荣誉院士. 他是英国皇家学会, 美国人文与科学学院及美国国家科学院院士.

The Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences is awarded to George Lusztig

for his fundamental contributions to algebra, algebraic geometry, and representation theory, and for weaving these subjects together to solve old problems and reveal beautiful new connections.

Lusztig received the 1985 AMS Cole Prize in Algebra “for his fundamental work on the representation theory of finite groups of Lie type”, particularly for his contributions to the classification of the irreducible representations in characteristic zero of the groups of rational points of reductive groups over finite fields. He was also awarded the 2008 AMS Steele Prize for Lifetime Achievement. The citation for the Steele Prize noted that Lusztig’s work “has entirely reshaped representation theory and in the process changed much of mathematics.”
