    Om Creative Minds

    This book features interviews of 38 eminent mathematicians and mathematical scientists who were invited to participate in the programs of the Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National University of Singapore. Originally published in its newsletter Imprints from 2003 to 2009, these interviews give a fascinating and insightful glimpse into the passion driving some of the most creative minds in modern research in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, economics and engineering.The reader is drawn into a panorama of the past and present developments of some of the ideas that have revolutionized modern science and mathematics. This book should be relevant to those who are interested in the history and psychology of ideas. It should provide motivation, inspiration and guidance to students who aspire to do research and to beginning researchers who are looking for career niches.For those who wish to be broadly educated, it is informative without delving into excessive technical details and is, at the same time, thought provoking enough to arouse their curiosity to learn more about the world around them.Contents:Sun-Yung Alice Chang: Analyst in Conformal LandJennifer Tour Chayes: Basic Research, Hidden ReturnsRobert F Engle: Archway to NobelTakeyuki Hida: Brownian Motion, White NoiseWilfrid Kendall: Dancing with RandomnessLawrence Klein: Economist for All SeasonsFanghua Lin: Revolution, Transitions, Partial Differential EquationsPao Chuen Lui: Of Science in DefenseAlbert Nikolaevich Shiryaev: On the Shoulder of a GiantTheodore Slaman & W Hugh Woodin: Logic and MathematicsCharles Stein: The Invariant, the Direct and the “Pretentious”Gilbert Strang: The Changing Face of Applied Mathematicsand other profilesReadership: Mathematicians, mathematical scientists, historians of mathematics, historians of science, historians of ideas, students and general public.
