Mathematical Embarrassments

  • Richard J. Lipton


Terence Tao is one of the greatest mathematicians of our time. Tao has already solved many long-standing open problems, which earned him a Fields Medal. What I cannot understand about him is how he can be so productive. He is the author of one of the best blogs in the world, he writes original articles that solve hard open problems, he writes great survey articles on a wide range of topics, and he is the author of terrific books on topics from additive combinatorics to partial differential equations. He is impressive.
