Chen Gao’s research results are to solve the independence of Chen Xiuxiong and Donaldson under the premise of stability The proposed J equation and the transformation of the supercritical Hermit-Yang Zhenning-Mills equation proposed by Qiu Chengtong and others have established a bridge between the Hermit-Yang Zhenning-Mills equation and the Keller-Einstein equation. The reviewer said, “Chen Gao introduced two bold ideas and solved two important equations. Similar results are extremely rare.”

According to the introduction, this result belongs to the research category of complex differential geometry. There are two important equations in physics in this field. One is Hermit-Yang Zhenning-Mills, which has become the standard model of quantum mechanics. The other equation is the Keller-Einstein equation closely related to the theory of relativity. Solving these two equations under a stable premise has always been the core task of complex differential geometry.

In 1977, Yau Chengtong solved the Keller-Einstein equation with zero curvature. In 1985, Donaldson, Uhlenbeck and Qiu Chengtong solved the Hermit-Yang Zhenning-Mills equation under stable conditions. In 2012, Chen Xiuxiong, Donaldson and Sun Song worked together to solve the Keller-Einstein equation with positive curvature under the premise of stability. Chen Gao’s work is another important development in this field.

Professor Chen Gao is only 26 years old. He enrolled in the Junior Class of the University of Science and Technology of China in 2008 and went to the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2012 to study for a Ph.D. under the tutelage of Professor Chen Xiuxiong. After graduating from his doctorate in 2017, he served as a postdoctoral fellow at the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study and an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Joined the Geometry and Physics Research Center of the University of Science and Technology of China in 2021.
