研究工作介紹
Li's research focuses on number theory. She studies the theory of automorphic forms and applications of number theory to coding theory and spectral graph theory. She also investigates the connections between number theory and combinatorics. In particular, she has applied her research results in automorphic forms and number theory to construct efficient communication networks called Ramanujan graphs and Ramanujan complexes. Her thesis work on the theory of modular forms was cited in Andrew Wiles' historical paper in which the 350yearold unsolved problem  "Fermat's Last Theorem"  was proven. In recent years, Li has revitalized the research on a field of mathematics known as arithmetic of modular forms for noncongruence subgroups. In a different field, her team has made a breakthrough in studying zeta functions for higher dimensional complexes.

ChunYen Shen works on Harmonic analysis and additive combinatorics. In both fields, Dr. Shen with coauthors solved some longstanding open problems.
國內兩位專家學者對沈俊嚴副教授研究成果給予如下之綜合評語：
1. The weighted norm inequality was established in 1970’s and became a fundamental tool in harmonic analysis. Such inequalities have found many important applications. The most famous result solved in terms of weighted norm inequality was Dirichlet problem on a Lipschitz domain obtained by Dahlberg in 1977. Another famous result was the characterization of one weight norm inequality for the Hilbert transform. This problem was solved by Hunt, Muckenhoupt and Wheeden in 1973. However, the problem characterizing two weights norm inequality for the Hilbert transform was a longstanding open problem. This problem is related to many questions such as PDE, embedding model spaces, perturbation problems for rank 1 operators. In a series of work, see Two weight inequality for the Hilbert transform, Duke Math J, A note on failure of energy reversal for classical fractional singular integrals, International Math. Research Notice, A two weight theorem for fractional singular integrals with an energy condition, Rev. Mat. Iber., Dr. Shen and his coauthors solved this problem. They introduced many new tools which will be used in many other applications.
2. In the area of harmonic analysis, ChunYen Shen investigates the following wellknown open problem: to find necessary and sufficient conditions for the boundedness of twoweight CalderonZygmund operators. The solution has important applications to several subjects. One of the major challenging open problems was the socalled NTV conjecture for the Hilbert transform, a 40 years open problem. This problem was finally settled in Shen’s work [Duke Math. J., 2014]. In addition, his recent work on the two weight boundedness of Cauchy transform has also settled another longstanding open problem, the embedding problem for Model spaces in the Hardy spaces. Also, his recent work on the boundedness of two weight inequality for the Hilbert transform in terms of Tb testing is a very successful work extending his previous solution of NTV conjecture in a very flexible and profound way.
ChunYen Shen has a series interesting results related to sumproduct estimates, which are of importance in additive combinatorics, number theory, and the theory of expanders. Several years ago best current result for fields of prime order was obtained by J. Bourgain (who received the Fields Medal in 1994) and M. Z. Garaev. However, it was not completely satisfactory since they considered difference rather than sums. The problem to get similar bound of sums and products remained open. It was finally solved by Shen. Moreover, he obtained a substantial generalization of the result of Bourgain and Garaev replacing products by general polynomials. Next, he proved an estimate for sums and products with a quite good exponent in other finite fields. He developed an original algebraic approach to prove analogs of sumproduct estimates for polynomials as well. This result using algebraic methods actually solved a problem proposed by Van. Vu [Israel J. Math., 2012]. I believe that algebraic methods will be increasingly the tool of choice in this area in the future. In addition, his recent work in [J. London Math. Soc., 2018] was very impressive as he proved a very nice lower bound for the size of the set AA+A, and also provided an upper bound for the same set which disproves a longstanding conjecture of A. Balog (a remarkable mathematician in this area).

研究工作介紹
In 1990s, the research area of nonhomogeneous Harmonic analysis became very active due to three famous mathematicians Nazarov, Treil and Volberg published an important result in Acta Math journal, where they successfully characterized the nonclassical one weight norm inequality for singular integrals and later an application of their result settled a longstanding conjecture of Vitushkin, that asked the question of analytic continuation of bounded analytic functions. Shortly after their result was published, all the focus went to the problem of characterizing two weight norm inequality for singular integrals, in part the solution will have many applications to other problems, such as PDE, embedding model spaces, perturbation problem for rank 1 operators e.t.c. Even the case for the Hilbert transform remained open until the results of Shen with his coauthors that completely settled the problem. One of main difficulties in two weight theory is that the given two weights are arbitrary Borel measures, and therefore all the classical CalderonZygmund theory can not be applied, and it required completely new ideas. In their proof, they introduced a new corona decomposition with the help of the nonhomegeneous stopping time methods, and used the two weight energy condition. Their result can be considered a profound extension of the famous T1 theorem by DavidJourne in 1970 Annals. In addition, their recent result on the two weight norm inequality for the Cauchy transform in the complex plane has also completely settled a difficult problem, the socalled Carleson embedding problem for model spaces.
Another research area that Shen is active on is the area of additive combinatorics, which studies the structures of sets. For example, Shen has been working on the sumproduct types problems in various settings. The sumproduct problem became wellknown as soon as the breakthrough work of Bourgain, Katz and Tao appeared in 2004. It also has been found to have many applications in discrete geometry and number theory. Shen started working on these problems through the rapiddeveloped Fourier analytic methods. Some of his early work gave a new proof of the sumproduct estimate, and obtained an explicit bound for the exponents. Later, Shen also worked on the extension problem in the setting of vector spaces over finite fields, in which he obtained a complete solution in the finite plane, and made an interesting application to the Erdos distinct distances problem.

黃皓瑋助理教授主要的研究領域是非交換機率理論，這個領域起初是1985年由D.V. Voiculescu教授提出的，是一個嶄新且具有挑戰性的研究領域。此領域有別於典型的機率領域因其具有非換性，且其與數學其他領域如代數幾何、算子理論、隨機矩陣都有密切的關聯。近三十年來獲得一些令人驚奇的結果，同時也有許多還未清楚還須釐清之處，所以此領域目前正在蓬勃發展中。
國內兩位專家學者對黃助理教授研究成果給予如下之綜合評語：
1. 黃助理教授與國外的合作團隊致力研究於自由機率在一些條件下是否可獲得對應的經典的機率定理，為此目標他們使用調和分析的技巧，獲得free convolution的機率分佈之拓樸性質和free Lévy processes地一些性質。這些結果不僅使他們能夠件夠具有特定規律性的free Lévy過程，同時也為自由機率理論提供了新的拓樸視角。這幾年黃助理教授與其合作團隊考慮在complex Hilbert空間的自由乘積，為此向左向右自由乘積隨機變數之間的選擇提供新的概念。然後他們開發了一種新的分析工具，即所謂的bifree harmonic analysis，並使用bifree harmonic analysis研究bifree probability中的極限定理和平面且bicircle上infinite divisibility的機率分佈。這些工作無論是在純數或應數都是重要的結果。非交換機率理論是嶄新且具淺力無窮的領域，黃助理教授與其合作團隊在當今世界非交換機率理論之領域屬於領先地位，並發表數篇文章於國際一流期刊。
2. Free probability和bifree probability 屬算子代數的範疇；他們雖在隨機矩陣的譜分布上有好的應用，但和機率論還有相當的距離。平行於機率論，用freeness和 bifreeness來取代獨立的觀念， free convolution和 bifree convolution取代convolution；然後找到適當的transform 來扮演Fourier transform在獨立和弱收斂上的角色來探討弱極限定理和極限的表示式。
黃助理教授發表四篇有關bifree probability的論文，有系統的討論二維的 bifreely infinitely divisible distributions的LevyKhinchine formula及其相關的弱收斂極限定理。其中一篇是在2torus上用partial Stransform 得到LevyKhinchine formula及討論triangular array 弱收斂極限定理。其他三篇則是利用partial Rtransform。
從機率論來看，找對了transform後，在bifree probability上對應古典定理的formulation是清楚的，但定理的證明並不容易。年輕人能有耐心，一步一步的做完全，值得鼓勵。

研究工作介紹
Dr. Huang's interest mainly lies in the area of noncommutative probability theory, which is a branch of pure mathematics and often recognized to be the noncommutative parallelism of classical probability theory. This rather young research field was initiated by D. V. Voiculescu around 1985, with the intention of examining in a probabilistic framework a yet open problem (free group factor isomorphism problem) in the theory of operator algebra. Since then, noncommutative probability theory has gradually been attested to be closely related to several research fields in physics and engineering other than operator algebra, such as random matrix theory, quantum information theory, and wireless communications.
From Dr. Huang's doctoral research period to the present, he has worked on several topics in free probability theory by making use of the auxiliary of free harmonic analysis, including topological properties of the free convolution of probability distributions and regularities of free Lévy processes. His findings not only allow ones to without difficulty construct free Lévy processes having specified regularities, strengthening regularity results established by Belnschi, BenaychGeorges, Bercovici, and Guionnet in the literature, but also offer a new topological perspective for free probability theory.
In recent years, a series of papers originating with the article by Voiculescu [Comm. Math. Phys. 332(2014), no.3, 955980] investigated the bifree extension of free probability, a brand new theory studying noncommutative bivariate random vectors (also known as twofaced faces). On a free product of complex Hilbert spaces, one simultaneously considers the left and right actions of linear operators on the original spaces. Choices between these two actions when modeling free random variables on the free product of Hilbert spaces afterward generate a new notion of independence among twofaced faces, the bifreeness. Dr. Huang and his collaborators subsequently developed an analytical implement, referred to as bifree harmonic analysis, and employed the bifree combinatorics machinery to study the limit theorems and related questions in bifree probability, for instance, the bifree infinite divisibility and stability of planar probability distributions. The corresponding themes in classical probability can trace back to the works of Khintchine, Kolmogorov, Gnedendo, and Lévy.
Concretely, explicit twofaced pairs in the bipartite system were constructed by Dr. Huang and his research members to characterize the collection of bifreely infinitely divisible distributions with compact support. Later, using the selfdeveloped analytical tool enabled them to eliminate the previously mentioned boundedness limitation of models in C^*algebras and theorize the infinite divisibility notion in the von Neumann algebra framework. The derivation of the bifree analogous LévyKhintchine formula offers a homeomorphism between the sets of infinitely divisible laws in bifree and classical probability theories. Identical consequences in the bicircle context were attained as well. Putting it differently, they have confirmed one important feature of bifree probability, as appearing in the free case, that this bifree extension parallels perfectly well with classical probability. The rigid links between bifree and classical probability discovered by Dr. Huang's research team will play a notable role in the following development.

兩位學者對陳星谷博士博士論文的綜合評語：
1. The thesis is around the birational geometry in dimension three. In less than a year, HsinKu Chen worked out a project on Betti numbers. His result is extracted and written as a journal article “Betti numbers in three dimensional minimal program”, submitted to Jour of London Math. Soc. and got very positive referee report.
The second half of his thesis is to study effective Iitaka fibration in dimension three. He managed to obtain a bound (86), which is almost optimal. This part of work was rewritten and submitted to prestigious journal Math. Annalen. He also got very positive reply.
2. HsinKu’s area of expertise is Algebraic Geometry and especially the binational geometry of complex 3folds. This is a very active area of research with a long history and many contributions by some of the top researchers in this area of mathematics.
The thesis contains two very impressive contributions solving two interesting and natural problems about the birational geometry of complex algebraic threefolds. The first problem that HsinKu solves in his thesis is about understanding the topology of the varieties obtained by steps of the minimal model program. The second interesting problem solved by HsinKu is a precise understanding of pluricanonical maps of smooth complex projective 3folds of Kodaira dimension 1.

兩位學者對吳其豪碩士論文的綜合評語：
1. 陳定立教授跟黃啟瑞教授在 2013 年的一篇文章中提出一個未被證明的猜想，吳同學在去年暑假很短的時間就將它證明出來。這結果已寫成論文，被 Statistics and Probability Letter 接受。而這項研究成果，他也在去年底的三所聯合會議中以壁報論文形式發表。
三所聯合會議後，獲得繼續在日本統計數理研究所一個月研習的難得機會。他在 Satoshi Ito 教授的指導下，研究關於球隊奪冠的魔術數字問題，並應用在中華職棒上，也快速地有著成果，正在撰寫論文以投稿。
接著，吳同學又將陳定立教授跟黃啟瑞教授等人在 2012 年一篇關於最佳馬可夫鏈傳遞矩陣的結果推廣到連續時間的馬可夫過程。結果也已經寫成論文，正在投稿中。
2. Markov chain Monte Carlo is an important topic in probability and statistics. This idea has been widely adopted in applications but some related theoretical problems are yet to be investigated in depth. 吳其豪’s work is in this direction.
The novelty of his approach is to use the mean commute time instead of the usual mean hitting time to study the asymptotic variance of the underlying approximating Monte Carlo Markov chain. This attribute describes the fluctuation of the Monte Carlo approximation corresponding to a central limit theorem.
He investigated equalities and inequalities related to the mean commute time. With this new perspective he obtained three very good results. 1) He presented a simpler and more intuitive way of deriving the optimal transition matrix studied in the paper. 2) He surprised me by solving a conjecture proposed by me a few years ago. 3) He studied the continuous time version of the problem. This is the first result along this line of research.

Since not every group rings kG, ZG is of finite representation type, they give the criteria based on Webb (for modular cases) and Reiner & Heller (for integral cases). They also construct infinitely many nonisomorphic classes of indecomposable ZGmodules, if ZG is not of finite representation type. They also study algebraic tori and a result of splitting fields of algebraic torus since the character group of an algebraic torus is an integral representation of a finite group.

兩位學者對許乃珩碩士論文的綜合評語：
1. The main purpose of Miss Sheu’s mater thesis was to organize several fundamental results of modular representations and integral representations of finite groups. The Chapter on integral representations where she reorganizes the main results of Myrna Lee “Integral Representations of Dihedral Groups of order 2p”. This paper is technically written and involved complicated calculations. I would say that her exposition actually simplifies and make the content more transparent. In fact, from the point she stands she could even generalize Lee’s result to dihedral groups of order 2n where n is a product of distinct old primes which would be useful and new results.
She also worked on two papers of Heller and Reiner for the proof of the main result stating that a finite group G of finite representation type for integral representations if and only if any Sylow psubgroup of G of order 1, p or p^2. She brought my attention to a question of Heller and Reiner concerning integral representations of the product G=C_p x C_p of two cyclic subgroups of prime order. The existence of infinitely many indecomposable integral representations of G plays a key role in the main result. Heller and Reiner proved this for odd, but they could only construct an example for the case p=2. They asked for a construction of arbitrary primes p. She tried to give a construction and finally she answered this question of Heller and Reiner (Proposition 72 of her thesis).
The last part of her thesis studies about splitting of algebraic tori. We worked out various proofs that every algebraic torus splits over a finite separable extension. This result links tori with integral representations of Galois groups and connects with current interesting results on the inverse Galois problem and Noether’s problem. In this part we generalize Chow’s Theorem to semiabelian varieties and give the sharp bound for the degree of splitting fields.
2. NaiHeng’s thesis is about modular representation of finite groups. She studied thoroughly P. Webb’s book “A course on finite group representation theory”, and the main novelty in her thesis is to fill in details that are not presented therein. In particular, she provided all details on the construction of infinitely many module representations of a product of cyclic groups of the same prime order. My impression is that the results may not be new although I am not an expert in this field, but the exposition of this thesis is high quality and above the average among Taiwan master theses in algebra.

論文工作介紹
A classical result states that the parity balance of number of excedances of all permutations (derangements, respectively) of length n is the Euler number. In 2010, JosuatVergès gives a qanalogue with q representing the number of crossings. We extend this result to the permutations (derangements, respectively) of type B and D. It turns out that the signed countings are related to the derivative polynomials of tan and sec.
Springer numbers defined by Springer can be regarded as an analogue of Euler numbers defined on every Coxeter group. In 1992 Arnol'd showed that the Springer numbers of classical types A, B, D count various combinatorial objects, called snakes. In 1999 Hoffman found that derivative polynomials of sec x and tan x and their subtraction evaluated at certain values count exactly the number of snakes of certain types. Then JosuatVergès studied the (t, q)analogs of derivative polynomials Q_{n}(t,q), R_{n} (t,q) and showed that as setting q=1 the polynomials are enumerators of snakes with respect to the number of sign changing. Our second result is to find a combinatorial interpretations of Q_{n}(t,q) and R_{n} (t,q) as enumerator of the snakes, although the outcome is somewhat messy.

兩位學者對廖信傑碩士論文的綜合評語：
1. 這篇論文的貢獻是實質上推廣了Euler與Roselle的成果到其他types，而且不只是數量上的推廣，更是做到q, t analogue的推廣，換言之也一併推廣了JosuatVergès等人的結果，並解答了q, tanalogue中 t 變數的組合意義。
論文中間有不少巧思，比如找到正確的統計量 ，與設計對消的對應，都是相當不平凡的。論文用到的方法主要為透過生成函數看組合模型，設計精巧的對應與代數運算。
2. 廖信傑的研究是關於有號排列多元統計量的計數定理。排列的統計量是古典組合數學重要的研究主題，如交錯排列個數是著名的尤拉數(Euler numbers)，其指數型生成函數可表示成tan x + sec x 。尤拉證明了一個技術定理：奇數長的排列按excedence統計量奇偶對消後剩餘的排列個數恰好為尤拉數，偶數長時則為0。學者Han, Randrianarivony, Zeng提出廣義的尤拉數，他們利用連分數定義單變數q 尤拉數，JosuatVergès則推廣尤拉的結果，得到細分計數定理：按crossing統計量分類之後，奇數長的排列按exdedence統計量奇偶對消後剩餘的排列個數恰好為 q尤拉數。此外，JosuatVergès利用代數方法定義雙變數t,q 尤拉數，信傑的碩士論文主要成果之一是利用組合方法將JosuatVergès的結果進一步推廣至B型與D型的有號排列上，得到以t,q 尤拉數為結果的雙統計量細分計數定理，並且為雙變數t,q尤拉數提出一個有號排列的組合解釋，這是一個創新的進展。
信傑研究的題目是相當難的問題，相關文獻都相當有深度，進入這個題材的門檻很高，而有號排列是排列的各個元素都有正負之分，其個數是排列個數的2的 n 次方倍，數量龐大，呈幾何級數成長，電腦能處理的長度相當有限，信傑有良好的程式能力，能從有限的線索中找出規律相當不容易，主要定理的證明方法是以賦權格路為骨幹的組合證明，相當有巧思。
