He received a doctorate from Purdue University, but at the time he had to rely on the odd jobs like the waiter and the waiter to make ends meet. He is over 50 years old and has a hard life. His mind still holds big questions of number theory. After the blockbuster, the authoritative magazine praised him as a great conjecture in the mathematical world was knocked open. He is called Zhang Yitang, a sweeping monk in the world of Mathematics The Changan Avenue magistrate learned that in May 4th, Peking University welcomed the 120th anniversary anniversary of the founding of the University. Recently, thousands of Peking University Students of grade 77 and 78 returned to school to celebrate their alma mater. Old classmates took pictures before their banner. At the commemoration conference, Professor Li Yining, an economist, delivered a lecture on behalf of the teacher. Mathematician Zhang Yitang, as the only graduate representative, made a speech at the 40th anniversary enrolment commemorative meeting held by his alma mater. At the commemorative meeting, Zhang Yi, a famous mathematician, made a speech to recollection of his Peking University years. Although he has graduated for more than thirty years, he still does not forget the expectation of the original teacher - when will the students we cultivate be able to make world - class achievements? Zhang Yitang, he did. A few years ago, A bounded distance between prime numbers, The highest mathematical journal, the annual journal of Mathematics After a strong recommendation, This man, who has been silent for thirty years, Instantaneously became the legend of the mathematical world. Yu Xins life is the most bleak. Zhang Yitang said it was his favorite Tang poem. This poem is talking about ancient times, but it seems to be talking about him. The talent of Peking University is half displaced and displaced. Over half a hundred years of the math world, Lets take a look at the legend A fast food shop still doesnt forget to count the big problems. Zhang Yitang is the first student in Beijing University mathematics department after the resumption of the college entrance examination. In 1978, 7 years later, he went to the United States to study. He received a doctorate from the Purdue University in the United States. But the paper deals with a tutors theory, He took the course of academic research. Only by doing odd jobs to maintain their livelihoods; The first six or seven years, He has been an accountant, a kitchen, and a takeaway. There is no fixed income, He can only live in the basement of a friends house. After 1999, I cant see a friend, To help him get a job at a university. A temporary lecturer, a lesson in a lesson, After several years, it turned into a formal lecturer. He taught the class, There is still a big question of number theory in my heart. His enthusiasm is all in mathematics. He could have studied several small questions. But he didnt want to, He just wanted to talk directly with the soul of mathematics. The twin prime conjecture has been studied for a long time. Intuition told him, You should be able to solve it. A lecturer opened the door to the great conjecture In July 3, 2012, On a sunny afternoon, Zhang Yitang was waiting for the deer at a good friends house. Suddenly came up with a research idea. A breakthrough in the mind was found. In April 17, 2013, He delivered an article to the year of mathematics, It is entitled bounded distance between prime numbers. Less than 1 months, Henry Ewanick, a top analytic number theory expert Self exposing the identity of the manuscript, To confirm that this is a historic breakthrough. The article is beautiful. Zhang Yitangs twin prime conjecture paper A man who does not understand mathematics, Dont think what, But its like the athletes, It will work for 0.01 seconds. Its just this time. After the twin prime conjecture was put forward for more than 100 years, It was proved by Zhang Yitang, The mathematician had a needle in a haystack in this conjecture. And he turned the sea into a lake, It also provides a way for others to continue to shrink. From then on, mathematicians will enter a new field. Start climbing other peaks. Zhang Yitang is a great song. Nature magazine praised his achievements. A great conjecture in the mathematical world has been knocked open. The New York Times reports on his achievements. At this point, This amazing new math star Its over half a hundred years. In 2014, Zhang Yitang won the Macarthur prize for genius. In the prizes, he said - Do not blindly adore authority, dare to challenge tradition, and be bold in exploring what others say is impossible. If you really love it, you will never give up. The two president of Peking University used him to encourage graduates In 2013, the Mathematics Department of Peking University was established 100th anniversary. At that time, Wang Enge, President of Peking University, shared the story of Zhang Yitang with graduates at the graduation ceremony. Since then, anecdotes about this mysterious figure have begun to spread among students in Peking University: for example, he is very sensitive to numbers, can remember all his classmates birthdays, send mail blessings on his birthday, and dont need a phone book, so he can write down a lot of phone calls... Zhang Yi Tangs Peking University speech video: not too many skills, or even a little stiff. On 2015, at the Peking University commencement ceremony, the headmaster Lin Jianhua once again mentioned Zhang Yi Tang. Zhang Yitangs academic career was hard and tortuous, and once there was no fixed job. When he made a great contribution to the conjecture of twin prime numbers and shocked the world of mathematics, he was more than 50 years old, and he was only a lecturer at a university in the United States. No matter how hard life is, his dream and love for mathematics are as pure and holy as ever before, and never changed. We have the atmosphere, we dare to do big problems. The 120th anniversary anniversary of Peking University, Zhang Yi Tang made a special trip back from the United States. Yesterday afternoon, Zhang Yi Tang wore a yellow commemorative shirt and glasses, and was calm and confident. He seemed to be back to the age of 40 years ago, when Ding Shisun taught analytic geometry, Shen Xiechang talked about mathematical analysis, and the teachers inculcation still echoed, and the students talked about the big problems. Zhang Yi Tang When can we cultivate students who can achieve world-class results? After thirty years of graduation, Zhang Yitang still did not forget his teachers expectations. As a North man, we have a big spirit, we dare to do these big problems, and we are persistent, no matter how many setbacks in the middle, we can stick to it. Zhang Yitang said. This is not only to share the influence of Peking University, but also his expectation for young students in Beijing University.
