Tsinghua University established the Mathematical Sciences Center in December 2009. The internationally renowned mathematician Professor ShingTung Yau, at the invitation of the university, became the director of the center. University Yau Mathematical Sciences Center in 2014. Under the leadership of Professor Shing-Tung Yau, in the past decade, YMSC has made substantial developments in terms of building top-notch faculty, selecting and cultivating young talents, conducting cutting-edge scientific researches and completing mathematical discipline construction. The YMSC now ranks among the Upholding the ‘International, Open and Academic’ spirit, YMSC has attracted a large number of top mathematical scholars and cultivated a group of outstanding young talents.
Mathematical researches at YMSC covers mainly 5 major areas and 3 cross theory, mathematical physics. dynamical systems and random analysis have achieved remarkable original results, earning fames on the international level. The establishment of Yanqi Lake Beijing Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Application or BIMSA in 2020 further extend researches into the applied mathematics area.
In the past decade, YMSC has been able to build a top-notch faculty. One of the recent additions, the 2018 Fields Medalist Caucher Birkar joins the team in 2021. Now, YMSC has 70 full-time faculty members, including 16 foreign faculty members. 31 of the faculty members are under the age of thirty-five. Currently, YMSC has 37 postdoctoral researchers, 6 of which are
