Masaki Kashiwara


Dr. Kashiwara established the theory of D-modules, thereby playing a decisive role in the creation and development of algebraic analysis. His numerous achievements—including the establishment of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence, its application to representation theory, and contribution to crystal basis theory—have exerted great influence on various fields of mathematics and contributed strongly to their development.
