From YMSC Director
Ever since its establishment in the early twentieth century, Tsinghua has always been regarded as the first-class university in China, being famous for its strong disciplines of engineering and applied sciences. Tsinghua University is far-sighted in recognizing the fundamental and strategic role of mathematics in science. In December 2009, Tsinghua University held the Inauguration Ceremony of the Mathematical Sciences Center, and invited me to be the first Director. This invitation carried with it the firm commitment and great expectations from the core leadership of Tsinghua University. This commitment gives me time and the opportunity to fully develop Yau Mathematical Sciences Center. I hope that on the basis of the sustained support, strategic investment and effective management of Tsinghua University, Tsinghua mathematical disciplines will develop into the forefront of Mathematics in the world. Many people have been working very hard for our common goal. I believe that with your support and participation, YMSC will make a significant contribution to mathematicians and mathematical disciplines around the world.
Director, YMSC of Tsinghua University
