数学界诺贝尔奖首现女性数学家

2014-08-14    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

伊朗女数学家Maryam Mirzakhani成为荣获菲尔茨奖(Fields Medal)的首位女性,菲尔茨奖(Fields Medal)4年颁发一次,号称数学界的诺贝尔奖,以前得奖的52名得主全是男性,Maryam是哈佛大学的博士,自小就超爱数学,称自己一做数学题就兴奋,有一种推理断案的感觉。

SEOUL (Reuters) - Iranian mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani on Wednesday became the first woman to be awarded the Fields Medal, mathematics' equivalent to the Nobel Prize.

The professor at Stanford University in California was among four Fields Medal recipients at the International Congress of Mathematicians held in Seoul, and the first female among the 56 winners since the prize was established in 1936.

"This is a great honor. I will be happy if it encourages young female scientists and mathematicians," Mirzakhani was quoted as saying on Stanford's website.

"I am sure there will be many more women winning this kind of award in coming years," she said.

Mirzakhani, 37, was born in Tehran and lived there until she began her doctorate work at Harvard University. She said she had dreamed of becoming a writer when she was young, but she pursued her enthusiasm for solving mathematical problems.



"It is fun – it's like solving a puzzle or connecting the dots in a detective case. I felt that this was something I could do, and I wanted to pursue this path," she said.

Mirzakhani was recognized for her work in understanding the symmetry of curved surfaces, according to the Stanford site.

The prizes are awarded every four years. Wednesday's prizes were presented by South Korean President Park Geun-hye, the first woman to hold that post.

The other three Fields Medal winners on Wednesday were Artur Avila of the National Center for Scientific Research in France and Brazil's National Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics; Manjul Bhargava of Princeton University and Martin Hairer of the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom.

百度百科:菲尔兹奖(Fields Medal,全名The International Medals for Outstanding Discoveries in Mathematics)是一个在国际数学联盟的国际数学家大会上颁发的奖项。它每四年颁奖一次,颁给二至四名有卓越贡献的年轻数学家。得奖者须在该年元旦前未满四十岁。菲尔兹奖是据加拿大数学家约翰·查尔斯·菲尔兹的要求设立的,菲尔兹奖从1936年起开始颁发,随后成为最著名的世界性数学奖。由于诺贝尔奖没有数学奖,因此也有人将菲尔茨奖誉为数学界的“诺贝尔奖”。
