About the Distinguished Lecture Series

  In 2011, the MSC launched four Distinguished Lecture series, which are named after four mathematicians of Tsinghua University: Shiing-Shen Chern, Loo-Keng Hua, Pao-Lu Hsu and Chia-Chiao Lin. Each program invites up to two outstanding mathematicians each year to present a series of two-to-four lectures on frontier topics. Past speakers in this program included three Fields medalists: Prof. Cedric Villani of University of Lyon, Prof. Vaughan Jones of Vanderbilt University and Prof. Laurent Lafforgue of Institut des Hautes tudes Scientifiques.

  为了培养下一代国际数学界带头人,同时纪念陈省身、华罗庚、许宝騄及表彰林家翘这四位杰出的数学大师及清华校友,清华大学数学科学中心于2011年7月启动了以这四位数学大师冠名的系列讲座,每年将邀请数学领域最顶尖的学者来清华作报告。设立陈省身讲座,以纪念他在几何与拓扑方面具有历史性的影响;设立华罗庚讲座,以纪念他在数论、代数和分析方面的基础性贡献;设立许宝騄讲座,以纪念他在统计和概率发展过程中的开创性贡献;设立林家翘讲座,以表彰纪念他在应用数学中的开创性贡献。
