EAWLC Zoom Learning for Curious People Lecture 3: Path of A Mathematician

Zicheng Qian, 24, is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at University of
Toronto, Department of Mathematics.  He finished his Doctorate degree in
Mathematics at Université Paris-sud, France in 2019, specializing in Number.
Before that he graduated from School of the Gifted Young, University of
Science and Technology of China.  When he conducts his research,
you’ll see him sitting in front of a computer or strolling around in the room,
thinking.  The most beautiful thing about mathematics is that only truth
works in its world, according to Zicheng.  No matter who you are or how
prestigious you are in this field, every mathematician is equal in front of
the provable truth; no vanity or fame can save you if you make a mistake.
So you get to be honest.

We are delighted that Zicheng will come to our Zoom Learning for Curious
People as a volunteer lecturer, and share his path, the experience,
challenges, and some advice.  We look forward to hearing his answers to the
following questions:

Why mathematics is so interesting?  What has triggered  your decision to go
on the path?

What are some achievements and challenges you have had When studying
mathematics?

What are some of the key factors to the development of a mathematician?

How to improve math skills?  Any good methods to recommend for learning
math?

What are some of the problems or difficulties have you seen in the
university or younger students who are struggling with math?  Do you have
any suggestions for them?

What is your plan for the future? How does a mathematicians future usually
look like?

Having lived in Canada, China, and France, do you see any cultural
differences And commonalities in the three countries?

You are also welcome to come up with your own questions, and Zicheng is
more than happy to give an honest answer!

钱子诚先生现年24岁,正在多伦多大学数学系做博士后研究。2019年他获得法国巴黎第十一大学数学博士学位。在那之前,他毕业于中国科学技术大学少年班。子诚
的专业方向是基础数学中的数论。当他做研究时,最常见的状态是坐在电脑前,或者在房间里来回踱步、思考。他觉得数学世界最美妙的地方,就是找到真理才是王道。不管你是前辈高人,还是后生小子,在证明真理面前一律平等。任何虚荣福明都无法让你更接近真理,所以学数学让人对这个世界抱持一种很诚实的态度。

我们非常高兴子诚能够来到学东西俱乐部做公益讲座,分享他的成长经历、学习方法和治学态度。届时我们可以听到他对下面这些问题的回答:

是什么让您走上了一条通向数学家的道路?数学的魔力何在?

在学数学的道路上,您有什么经验或教训可以分享吗?

有哪些因素对数学家的成长特别重要?

有什么学数学的好方法可以推荐吗?

作为数学老师,您在学生身上看到过什么通病吗?对于正在为数学课而苦恼的同学,您有什么建议吗?

您对未来有什么计划?一个数学家的未来通常是什么样的?

在中国、法国和加拿大都生活过,您对这三个国家之间的文化异同有什么观察和心得吗?

也欢迎听众们踊跃提出自己的问题。子诚很乐意给您一个诚实的回答

时间: 2020年6月5号周五晚上8:00到9:30。(加东时间)

免费公益Zoom视频讲座,限额100人。会议厅将在讲座开始前15分钟开放。届时请点击如下链接直接进入:
