Ukrainian scientist Marina Vyazovskaya received the Award of Salem 2016 mathematics prize, which is annually awarded to young mathematician for outstanding research results in the sphere of scientific interest of Raphael Salem, primarily the theory of Fourier series. This award is extremely prestigious, the analogue of the Nobel prize, only for mathematicians. About it reports a press-service of the Ministry of education and science of Ukraine.
The Commission was awarded to Marina vyazovskaya for her discoveries of the world level – for the most dense packings in 8 and 24-dimensional spaces using methods of modular forms.
In 2016, the mathematician solved the problem, the solution of which scientists have worked for several centuries: packing of balls in 8-dimensional space and, in collaboration, in 24-dimensional. In other words, the scientist has found a solution to the packing of balls in Euclidean space. Previously the task of wrapping the balls were solved only for spaces with three or less dimensions.
Marina Vyazovskaya graduated from the Kiev Lyceum of natural Sciences No. 145, mechanical-mathematical faculty of Kiev national University named after Taras Shevchenko. 2010 he defended his thesis at the Institute of mathematics of NAS of Ukraine on “Bumps polynomial and rational functions and quadrature formulas on the sphere”, and in 2013 received the degree of doctor of natural Sciences at the University of Bonn, with a thesis “Modular functions and special cycles”.
