Jim Simons: another mathematical master and brightest billionaire !!

https://blogs.ams.org/mathgradblog/2018/02/03/incomplete-jim-simons-matters/#more-32329

Just sharing this AMS blog, one of the best motivational, living legends of Mathematics and its applications in minting money..

With lots of regards to Prof. Jim Simons, and AMS blogger, Jacob Gross — from Nalin Pithwa.

PS: I hope/wish such motivational examples exist in India also…It would be a great service to Indian mathematics..

An Irish lady mathematician :-) :-) :-)

Why study geometry? An answer from Prof. Gangsong Leng

Reference:

Geometric Inequalities, Vol 12, Mathematical Olympiad Series, Gangsong Leng, translated by Yongming Liu, East China Normal University Press, World Scientific.

“God is always doing geometry”, said Plato. But, the deep investigation and extensive attention to geometric inequalities as an independent field is a matter of modern times.

Many geometric inequalities are not only typical examples of mathematical beauty but also tools for applications as well. The well known Brunn-Minkowski’s inequality is such an example. “It is like a large octopus, whose tentacles stretches out into almost every field of mathematics. It has not only relation with advanced mathematics such as the Hodge index theorem in algebraic geometry, but also plays an important role in applied subjects such as stereology, statistical mechanics and information theory.”
