Waseda professor Martin Guest (Faculty of Science and Engineering) was awarded the prestigious Mathematical Society of Japan (MSP) Autumn Prize 2021 for his contributions to the study of tt* equations and quantum cohomology. Guest is also a member of Waseda’s Multiscale Analysis, Modelling and Simulation Unit, and his achievements have been previously introduced in the MSP magazine Sugaku.
The Autumn Prize is one of the most prestigious prizes awarded by the MSJ to its members. The Autumn Prize is awarded without age restriction to people who have made exceptional contributions in their fields of research.
I feel very honored to be awarded the Autumn Prize by the Mathematical Society of Japan. During my career in Japan I have been very fortunate to receive warm encouragement and friendship from the mathematical community here.
In particular the academic environment of the Super Global Mathematics and Physics Unit has been very stimulating!
