Date: 11 May 2020
Congratualtions to former Clay Research Fellow Jack Thorne (2012-2017) who has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society for his multiple breakthroughs in diverse areas of algebraic number theory, particularly its interaction with representation theory and the theory of automorphic forms.
The work cited in support of his election includes: his proof of new cases of functoriality for holomorphic modular forms; the modularity of elliptic curves over any layer of the cyclotomic tower; the existence of Galois representations associated to regular algebraic automorphic forms; and the potential automorphy of local systems on curves over finite fields.
Jack is currently a Professor of Pure Mathematics at the Univesity of Cambridge.
