Austrian-British mathematician
Sir Martin Hairer KBE FRS (born 14 November 1975^{[2]} ) is an Austrian-British mathematician working in the field of stochastic analysis , in particular stochastic partial differential equations . He is Professor of Mathematics at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) and at Imperial College London . He previously held appointments at the University of Warwick and the Courant Institute of New York University .^{[5]} ^{[6]} ^{[7]} ^{[8]} In 2014 he was awarded the Fields Medal ,^{[9]} one of the highest honours a mathematician can achieve.^{[10]} In 2020 he won the 2021 Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics .^{[11]}
Early life and education
Hairer was born in Geneva , Switzerland.^{[2]} He attended the Collège Claparède Geneva where he received his high school diploma in 1994. He entered a school science competition with sound editing software that was developed into Amadeus,^{[12]}
and later continued to maintain the software in addition to his academic work; it continued to be widely used as of 2020^{[update]} .^{[11]} He then attended the University of Geneva , where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics in July 1998, Master of Science in Physics in October 1998 and PhD in Physics under the supervision of Jean-Pierre Eckmann in November 2001.^{[3]} ^{[13]}
Research and career
Hairer is active in the field of stochastic partial differential equations in particular, and in stochastic analysis and stochastic dynamics in general.^{[14]} He has worked on variants of Hörmander's theorem , systematisation of the construction of Lyapunov functions for stochastic systems, development of a general theory of ergodicity for non-Markovian systems , multiscale analysis techniques , theory of homogenisation , theory of path sampling and theory of rough paths ^{[14]} and, in 2014, on his theory of regularity structures .^{[15]}
Under the name HairerSoft, he develops Macintosh software.^{[12]}
