On January 26, 2021, prof. Terence Tao, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), will deliver a colloquium talk on Sendov’s conjecture organized by the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics – BAS, the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at the University of Miami (IMSA) and the Union of Bulgarian Mathematicians (UBM).

Terence Tao is an Australian-American mathematician, born in 1975. He is a professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California. He works in a number of mathematical areas, but primarily in harmonic analysis, PDE, geometric combinatorics, arithmetic combinatorics, analytic number theory, compressed sensing, and algebraic combinatorics. Tao is an editor or an associate editor at several mathematical journals. He is the author and co-author of over three hundred scientific publications.

Terence Tao was awarded the Fields Medal in 2006. In 2012, he won the Crafoord Prize of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, which is

considered equal to the Nobel Prize. In 2014 Terence Tao became a laureate of The Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics “for numerous breakthrough contributions to harmonic analysis, combinatorics, partial differential equations and analytic number theory”.

In December 2020, Prof. Tao managed to make a major breakthrough in the proof of Sendov’s conjecture about the distribution of the critical points of a complex polynomial, proving this conjecture for sufficiently high degree polynomials (https://arxiv.org/abs/2012.04125).

His lecture is entitled Sendov’s conjecture for sufficiently high degree polynomials. The event will be held online through the Zoom platform, starting at 18:15 EET on January 26, 2021.

This event is organized in memory of Academician Blagovest Sendov who passed away one year ago.
