Timeline of Shou-Wu Zhang


In 2018, Yuan and Zhang (2018) proved the averaged Colmez conjecture which was shown to imply the André–Oort conjecture for Siegel modular varieties by Jacob Tsimerman.


In a series of works in the 2000s (Zhang 2001b, 2004, Yuan, Zhang & W. Zhang 2009), Zhang proved a generalization of the Gross–Zagier theorem from elliptic curves over rationals to modular abelian varieties of GL(2) type over totally real fields. In particular, the latter result led him to a proof of the rank one Birch-Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture for modular abelian varieties of GL(2) type over totally real fields through his work relating the Néron–Tate height of Heegner points to special values of L-functions in (Zhang 1997, 2001a). Eventually, Yuan, Zhang, and W. Zhang (2013) established a full generalization of the Gross–Zagier theorem to all Shimura curves.


Zhang has received a Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship (1997) and a Morningside Gold Medal of Mathematics (1998). He is also a Clay Foundation Prize Fellow (2003), Guggenheim Foundation Fellow (2009), Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2011), and Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (2016). He was also an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1998.


In arithmetic dynamics, Zhang (1995a, 2006) posed conjectures on the Zariski density of non-fibered endomorphisms of quasi-projective varieties and Ghioca, Tucker, and Zhang (2011) proposed a dynamical analogue of the Manin–Mumford conjecture.


Zhang’s doctoral thesis Positive line bundles on Arithmetic Surfaces (Zhang 1992) proved a Nakai–Moishezon type theorem in intersection theory using a result from differential geometry already proved in Tian Gang’s doctoral thesis. In a series of subsequent papers (Zhang 1993, 1995a, 1995b, Szpiro, Ullmo & Zhang 1997), he further developed his theory of ‘positive line bundles’ in Arakelov theory which culminated in a proof (with Emmanuel Ullmo) of the Bogomolov conjecture (Zhang 1998).


Zhang was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study and an assistant professor at Princeton University from 1991 to 1996. In 1996, Zhang moved back to Columbia University where he was a tenured professor until 2013. He has been a professor at Princeton University since 2011.


Zhang was admitted to the Sun Yat-sen University chemistry department in 1980 after scoring poorly on his mathematics entrance examinations but later transferred to the mathematics department after feigning color blindness and received his bachelor’s degree in mathematics in 1983. He then studied under analytic number theorist Wang Yuan at the Chinese Academy of Sciences where he received his master’s degree in 1986. In 1986, Zhang was brought to the United States to pursue his doctoral studies at Columbia University by Dorian M. Goldfeld. He then studied under Goldfeld, Hervé Jacquet, Lucien Szpiro, and Gerd Faltings, and then completed his PhD at Columbia University under Szpiro in 1991.


Shou-Wu Zhang (Chinese: 张寿武 ; pinyin: Zhāng Shòuwǔ ; born October 9, 1962) is a Chinese-American mathematician known for his work in number theory and arithmetic geometry. He is currently a Professor of Mathematics at Princeton University.

Shou-Wu Zhang was born in Hexian, Ma’anshan, Anhui, China on October 9, 1962. Zhang grew up in a poor farming household and could not attend school until eighth grade due to the Cultural Revolution. He spent most of his childhood raising ducks in the countryside and self-studying mathematics textbooks that he acquired from sent-down youth in trades for frogs. By the time he entered junior high school at the age of fourteen, he had self-learned calculus and had become interested in number theory after reading about Chen Jingrun’s proof of Chen’s theorem which made substantial progress on Goldbach’s conjecture.
