Sir Martin Haier, a professor at Imperial College London, has been awarded মার্ক 3 million (৩ 2.3 million) from the Mark Zuckerberg Science Foundation for developing equations related to shaking a cup of tea.
Dual British-Austrian citizen Professor Haier received the 2021 Breakthrough Award in Mathematics.
The 44-year-old will receive his money and a trophy at a live awards ceremony next year
Breakthrough Awards were started by Google co-founder Sergey Brin, Mr. Zuckerberg is the founder of Facebook And his wife, Priscilla Chan, as well as Russian entrepreneur Yuri Milner and his wife, Julie Milner, and co-founder of 23 Mand, Ann Wozniacki.
Professor Haier said: “I was surprised but obviously very honored. I am very happy that I can inspire some people to study mathematics or have a better understanding of what mathematics is.
“Mathematics is true. Once you discover something in mathematics, it applies forever.”
He had previously won the Fields Medal in 2014 – often described as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize in Mathematics – and made headlines in 201.
His work “focuses on generating equations to accurately describe seemingly random motions of time and space, such as how water droplets spread across the surface of a napkin, bacteria grow on a petri dish, or create chaotic activities for millions of people in the stock business,” Imperial College According to London.
Known as the Stochastic Partial Differential Equation (PDE), Professor Haier proceeded to an understanding of the regularity framework that “creates analytical tool kits for the study of stochastic PDEs” by modeling random effects on physical systems.

“Although the exact details of stock market fluctuations and the movement of water atoms are very different, their potential consequences are the same,” Professor Haier explained.
He and his mathematician wife, Professor Jiu-Mai Lee, moved to London three years ago, where they are currently renting – although they said they plan to use the ৩ 2.3 million prize to buy a home.
