Biography. Shing-Tung Yau was the fifth of the eight children of his parents Chen Ying Chiou and Yeuk-Lam Leung Chiou. His father was an economist and philosopher working in southern China when Yau was born. However, by late 1949 the Communists were in control of almost all of China and Yau's family fled to Hong Kong where his father obtained a ...
One of the first remarkable things that mathematician Shing-Tung Yau reveals in his memoir, The Shape of a Life, is that his name was not originally Yau. His family fled China to British-ruled ...

David Gruber and Sylvia Nasar on the math world’s war over who solved the Poincaré conjecture. Among the contenders are Shing-Tung Yau and Grigory Perelman.
A Messy Proof. Dr. Yau’s eagerness to help China can backfire, and that seems to have happened in the case of the Poincaré conjecture. The conjecture, first set forth by Henri Poincaré in 1905 ...
