地      点 :理科群1号楼D-203室

讲座内容:

I recount some personal experience: how I came to Harvard; how Harvard shaped mylife as a mathematician and physicist; how Harvard influenced my relationship with China and some hopes for tomorrow.

主讲人介绍:

Arthur Jaffe, L.T. Clay Professor of Mathematics and Theoretical Science, Harvard University(哈佛大学), Distinguished Visiting Professor, Chinese Academy of Science , Academy of Mathematics and System Science, Beijing.

Arthur Jaffe's major scientific work has been in the realm of understanding quantum theory and the mathematics that it inspires. Jaffe solved a fundamental question by showing the compatibility of special relativity, quantum theory, and interactions. With J. Glimm he constructed the first mathematically-complete and non-trivial examples of relativistic quantum field theories. Recently Jaffe's research has focused on the relation between super-symmetry and a new mathematical subject -- non-commutative geometry--where one builds quantum space into the notion of space-time.
