ICTP has awarded the 2019 Ramanujan Prize for Young Mathematicians from Developing Countries to Hoàng Hiệp Phạm of the Institute of Mathematics-Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology in Hanoi, Vietnam. The prize is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of complex analysis, and in particular to pluripotential theory, where he obtained an important result on the singularities of plurisubharmonic functions; complex Monge-Ampère equations and log canonical thresholds, which have important applications in algebraic and complex Kähler geometry. The prize is also in recognition of Dr. Pham's important organizational role in the advancement of mathematics in his home country, Vietnam. The Prize Ceremony is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 10 December 2019 starting at 14.30 hrs. The programme will include a talk by Professor Filippo Bracci (Roma Tor Vergata) on "Pluripotential Theory". ICTP administers the Ramanujan Prize jointly with the Department of Science and Technology (DST, Government of India), and the International Mathematical Union (IMU).
The prize is awarded annually to a researcher from a developing country who is less than 45 years of age on 31 December of the year of the award, and who has conducted outstanding research in a developing country. Researchers working in any branch of the mathematical sciences are eligible.
