Have you ever been to Japan? In this episode, two Japanese mathematicians, Ken Hayami and Hisashi Okamoto, share some interesting background information that may enrich your experience at ICIAM 2023 Tokyo.

Ken Hayami, born in 1956, obtained his master’s degree in 1981 from the University of Tokyo and began his career as a researcher at the NEC Corporation. He obtained PhD degrees from the Wessex Institute of Technology (1991) and the University of Tokyo (1993), respectively. In 1993, he joined the faculty of the University of Tokyo and later he moved to NII/Sokendai, where he is now professor emeritus. Ken Hayami has been the president of the Japan SIAM since June 2023.

Hisashi Okamoto, born in 1956, obtained his PhD from the University of Tokyo in 1985, supervised by Hiroshi Fujita. He previously held positions at the University of Tokyo and the Research Institute of Mathematics (Kyoto University), and is now at Gakushuin University in Tokyo.

His achievements have been recognized with several prizes, including the Fields Medal in 2018 for his contributions to the theory of optimal transport, and the European Mathematical Society Prize in 2012 in recognition of his excellent contributions to mathematics.

In a lively conversation with Luigi Ambrosio, a Professor at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Figalli discusses his early days in mathematics and his unique career path. He also comments on the differences in university systems among countries, how he manages his time with professional, personal, and family duties, the increasing importance of optimal transport in recent years, and his approach to problem-solving in mathematics.

Catriona Byrne has French and Scottish origins. She obtained her PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 1982 and worked for Springer as a Publishing Editor and later as Director for Mathematics until 2022, working with international teams of editors. In that time she held responsibility for many book series, including the flagship Grundlehren and Ergebnisse, and the Lecture Notes in Mathematics, as well as many journals including Inventiones Mathematicae, Mathematische Annalen, Mathematische Zeitschrift, and Probability Theory and Related Fields.

Among other innovations, she initiated the digitisation of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics series, and she launched and developed Springer’s successful programme of books and three journals in mathematical finance from 1998.

She will be hosted by Bernard Teissier.

Bernard Teissier, born 1945, is a French mathematician who has made major contributions to algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, specifically to singularity theory, multiplicity theory and valuation theory. His PhD from the University of Paris VII Denis-Diderot in 1973 was supervised by Heisuke Hironaka. He was a member of Nicolas Bourbaki. He has been a CNRS researcher at the École Polytechnique, the École Normale Supérieure and at Paris Universities. He was an Invited Speaker at the 1983 International Congress of Mathematicians in Warsaw.

Bernard Teissier has been one of the Editors of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Mathematics series since 1995.

In this episode, we've invited him to talk about the interactions between mathematics and physics, how the international education and research experience influence a scientist, and the activities carried out at Chern Institute and Nankai University.

Yang-Hui He studied at Princeton University, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Physics, with a Certificate in Applied Mathematics and a Certificate in Engineering Summa cum Laude (Highest Honours, Phi-Beta-Kappa). He then obtained a Certificate in Advanced Mathematics (Tripos) at Cambridge University, with Distinction. He went on to receive his PhD in theoretical and mathematical physics from MIT and continued at the University of Pennsylvania before joining Oxford University as a FitzJames Fellow in Mathematics and then UK STFC Advanced Fellow in theoretical physics.

Prof. He is a mathematical physicist working on various interfaces between geometry and theoretical high energy physics. He is particularly interested in aspects of algebraic geometry in application to, and interacting with, gauge theory as well as string theory, such as Calabi-Yau manifolds, holographic correspondences and string phenomenology. He also has interests in the dialogue between number theory, graph representation theory and gauge theories. Yang-Hui He is author of over 200 scientific publications and also a keen communicator of science. With Springer, he published in 2021 The Calabi-Yau Landscape. From Geometry to Physics, to Machine Learning as volume 2293 of Lecture Notes in Mathematics. In late 2022, the Proceedings of the Nankai Symposium on Mathematical Dialogues will appear, a symposium which celebrated the 110th birthday of S.-S. Chern.

In this episode, we've invited him to talk about the challenges and the opportunities of doing research in mathematics in Latin America, the role of IMPA in the development of mathematical research in the region, and the perspectives of regional and global cooperation.

Marcelo Viana obtained his PhD at the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics, in 1990, six years after finishing his undergraduate studies at the University of Porto, Portugal. His main research interests are in Dynamical Systems and Theory of Chaos. He has received many prizes and distinctions, among them the Ramanujan Prize from the International Center for Theoretical Physics of Trieste, in 2005, and the Grand Prix Scientifique Louis D. from the Academy of Sciences of Paris, France, in 2016. He has supervised over forty PhD students and published over sixty papers and more than ten books. Viana is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Bulletin of the Brazilian Mathematical Society.

He will be hosted by Robinson dos Santos, Editor for Mathematics.

Dr. Jackson’s research lies within the overarching field of mathematical biology, which can be characterized by the use of sophisticated mathematical, statistical, and computational modeling techniques to facilitate a deep understanding of biology for human benefit and the mitigation of human harm. Within Mathematical Biology, she specializes in Computational Cancer Research or Mathematical Oncology. Mathematical and computational modeling approaches have been applied to every aspect of tumor growth from mutation acquisition and tumorigenesis to metastasis and treatment response. Dr. Jackson’s research focuses on developing mathematical methods to address critical questions associated with tumor progression and targeted therapeutics. Dr. Jackson has built her career on collaborative research and educational activities that cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries. She envisions that this type of research will eventually change the face of cancer research.
