Prof. Hironori Shiga
Chiba University, Japan
Modular functions with application to number theory
Hironori Shiga was born in Tokyo in 1944. He finished his under graduate school and graduate course at University of Tokyo. He started his specialized study in the fields of several complex variables and complex algebraic geometry. During his time of discipline he received advices of Prof. Kiyoshi Oka, Prof. Kunihiko Kodaira and others. He started his teaching career at Chiba university (Japan) and a few years after became an associate professor there. He got a promotion to a full professor there also. He stayed two years at Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (Italy) as a Grant Student of Italian government. There Prof. Edoardo Vesentini was a supervisor. During the stay in Italy, he began to build the theory of K3 modular function. This is a theory considered to be a natural extension of the classical modular function also related to modern physics and cryptography. From 90's he began to make research in the fields of number theory. He published over 10 articles in this direction. And he made many expositions at various international conferences (like Obervolfach, Luminy, I.C.M. etc.) on this subject. He gave many course lectures at various graduate schools as an invited professor (for example, Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Padova university (Italy), Abdus Salam School of Mathematical Sciences, Lahore (Pakistan), etc. ). From 2009 he is a professor emeritus at Chiba university.
