Providence, RI---Xiaojun Huang of Rutgers University and Steve Zelditch of Northwestern University have been awarded the 2013 Stefan Bergman Prize, the American Mathematical Society announced today. Huang and Zelditch will share equally US$24,564, which is the 2013 income from the Stefan Bergman Trust. "Xiaojun Huang and Steve Zelditch are leaders in geometric analysis, a focus of contemporary mathematical research," said Harold Boas of Texas A&M University, a member of the prize selection committee. "Their penetrating insights have solved long-standing problems and transformed subsequent work in the field." Xiaojun Huang Xiaojun Huang is recognized for innovative and influential contributions to CR geometry. He has introduced original ideas and powerful techniques to resolve fundamental problems such as the algebraicity of holomorphic maps between algebraic strongly pseudoconvex hypersurfaces in different dimensions, the rigidity of proper holomorphic maps between balls in complex spaces of different dimensions, and a longstanding question of Moser about the moduli space of Bishop surfaces having vanishing Bishop invariant. Xiaojun Huang received a bachelor's degree in engineering in 1983 from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and a master's degree in mathematics in 1986 from Wuhan University, where he served as a teaching instructor until coming to the U.S. in 1989. Huang obtained his PhD from Washington University in 1994. After holding positions at the University of Chicago and at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, he joined the faculty of the Mathematics Department of Rutgers University in 1997, where he is currently a Distinguished Professor. Huang was named an AMS Fellow of the Class of 2014. His invited mathematical talks include an invited plenary address at the 29th Biannual Brazilian Mathematics Colloquium at the Instituto de Matematica Pura e Aplicada in Brazil in August 2013 and an AMS invited address at the fall 2013 Sectional Meeting in Philadelphia in October 2013. Xiaojun Huang教授是国际知名的复几何专家，在正规型理论、刚性问题、CR流形的形变等领域作出了一系列重要的发现。 Steve Zelditch Steve Zelditch is recognized for his ever expanding the horizon of applications of the Bergman kernel. From his semi-classical viewpoint and with his strikingly original vision, he has found deep and diverse relations between the Bergman kernel and many other areas, including complex geometry, probability, and mathematical physics. In the process, he has infused the whole subject of the Bergman kernel with a new vitality. Steve Zelditch is Wayne and Elizabeth Jones Professor of Mathematics at Northwestern University. He got his bachelor's degree from Harvard and his PhD from UC Berkeley in 1981. He was on the faculty at Columbia University and Johns Hopkins University before moving to Northwestern in 2010. He was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Beijing (2004) and has twice been an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematical Physics. He gave Current Developments in Mathematics lectures at Harvard in 2009 and an AMS Invited Address in at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in 2005. He has served on the editorial boards of several major journals, including his current service on the boards of Communications in Mathematical Physics, Analysis & PDE, and the Journal of Geometric Analysis. About the Prize Established in 1988, the Bergman Prize honors the memory of Stefan Bergman, who was best known for his research in several complex variables, as well as for the Bergman projection and the Bergman kernel function that bear his name. A native of Poland, he taught at Stanford University for many years and died in 1977 at the age of 82. He was an AMS member for 35 years. When his wife died, the terms of her will stipulated that funds should go toward a special prize in her husband's honor. On behalf of Wells Fargo Bank of California, the manager of the Bergman Trust, the AMS assembles committees to select recipients of the prize. Bergman Prize（伯格曼奖） 伯格曼信托基金会授奖。出生于波兰的美国数学家S。伯格曼的遗孀去世后，按其遗愿为纪念其丈夫把她的捐款设立了伯格曼信托基金会并设立此奖。由美国数学会审选受奖者，每年一次，1989年首次颁奖，奖励在核函数理论及其在实与复分析中的应用、函数理论方法在椭圆型偏微分方程中的应用，特别是伯格曼算子方法等方面的成果。 |
