ICTP’s 2010 Ramanujan Prize has been awarded to Professor Yuguang Shi of the School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University. The prize is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the geometry of complete (noncompact) Riemannian manifolds, specifically the positivity of quasi-local mass and rigidity of asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds.

The prize is also in acknowledgement of the substantial contribution that Professor Shi has made to mathematics in China through over 15 years of teaching and research.
