Biographical sketch

Lin WENG studied and worked on classical algebaric geometry in 1980's in China. During his 1989-1991 stay at Max-Planck Institute for Mathematics, he shifted his interests to arithmetic geometry. Then, Weng worked on arithmetic Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem, by introducing relative Bott-Chern secondary characteristic classes. He moved to Osaka University in 1997. At the end of 1990's, he applied Arakelov geometry to moduli spaces of punctured Riemann surfaces, existence of Kaehler-Einstein metrics and stability. Since 1999, Weng has focused on the Program on Geometric Arithmetic, by completing a non-abelian class field theory for function fields over complex numbers, establishing a global cohomology theory for number fields, introducing non-abelian zeta functions and discovering the Weng zeta functions for (reductive group, maximal parabolic subgroup)s for global fields. Before transfering to Kyushu University in 2002, Weng also worked at Kobe University and Nagoya University. His current interests include Algebraic/Arithmetic/Complex Geometry and Number Theory. His very recent book on Zeta Functions of Reductive Groups and Their Zeros will be published in 2018 by the World Scientific.
