Professors Benoit Collins, Hiroshi Iritani, Shu Kato, and Atsushi Ichino at our department have been invited to give lectures at ICM 2022 (2022 July, Saint Petersburg).
Comments from the four professors
My research area is related to Random Matrix Theory and my main results are based on various long term collaborations. I joined Kyoto University in 2014, and received lots of support for my research and international exchanges. I would like to express my gratitude to people in Kyoto University and in Japan for their continued support. (Benoit Collins)
I introduced a structure called the gamma-integral structure in the study of Hodge-theoretic mirror symmetry. The geometrical origin of this structure has not yet been fully elucidated, but we have gradually come to understand a lot thanks to our collaborators. I am very honored and fortunate to have such an opportunity. (Hiroshi Iritani)
I am mainly working on developing connections between representation theory of algebraic groups/quantum groups and geometry of special varieties, aiming at extending the scope of both. I feel very honored to be invited to ICM2022. I would like to express my gratitude to people who have kindly supported me in this occasion. (Shu Kato)
I am surprised and humbled to be invited to ICM2022. I would not have been able to continue my research on automorphic forms without the support of my collaborators and colleagues. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them. (Atsushi Ichino)
