CanaDAM’17 is underway at Ryerson, and tonight, Jordan Ellenberg is giving the Public Lecture on the cap set conjecture. I’m reposting my interview with him in honor of that occasion. Enjoy! *** Jordan Ellenberg is the John D. MacArthur and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He works in… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Jordan Ellenberg

Richard K. Guy is the only mathematician I know working at age 100. A professor at University of Calgary, Richard is an expert in geometry, number theory, graph theory, and he is especially known for his contributions to combinatorial game theory. A prolific author with over 300 papers, he has worked with the greats such as Paul… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Richard K. Guy

Jordan Ellenberg is the John D. MacArthur and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He works in arithmetic algebraic geometry, and is well-known for his research connecting geometry, number theory, and topology. He is highly awarded, and is a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, as well as a Guggenheim and… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Jordan Ellenberg

Ingrid Daubechies is the James B. Duke Professor of Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. Her doctoral work was in physics, focusing on the mathematics of quantum mechanics. She is best known for her discovery of compactly supported continuous wavelets, now called Daubechies wavelets. Her work has found broad application to signal and image processing,… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Ingrid Daubechies

Nassif Ghoussoub is the founder and current director of the Banff International Research Station, the founding director of the Pacific Institute of Mathematics, and the co-founder of MITACS NCE. On top of all that, he is an award-winning mathematician, whose most recent work focuses on differential equations and mass transport theory. I met Nassif when he… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Nassif Ghoussoub

Ken Ono is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Emory University. His highly accomplished research program focuses on number theory, algebra, and combinatorics. Ken graduated from UCLA with his doctorate of mathematics in 1993. Before joining Emory in 2010, he has held several academic positions including one at the Institute for Advanced Study at… Read More Interview with a mathematician: Ken Ono
