About Thierry Aubin

  • Thierry Aubin (6 May 1942 – 21 March 2009) was a French mathematician who worked at the Centre de MathĂ©matiques de Jussieu, and was a leading expert on Riemannian geometry and non-linear partial differential equations.
  • His fundamental contributions to the theory of the Yamabe equation led, in conjunction with results of Trudinger and Schoen, to a proof of the Yamabe Conjecture: every compact Riemannian manifold can be conformally rescaled to produce a manifold of constant scalar curvature.
  • Along with Yau, he also showed that Kähler manifolds with negative first Chern classes always admit Kähler–Einstein metrics, a result closely related to the Calabi conjecture.
  • The latter result provides the largest class of known examples of compact Einstein manifolds.
  • Aubin was the first mathematician to propose the Cartan–Hadamard conjecture. Aubin was a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study in 1979.
  • He was elected to the AcadĂ©mie des sciences in 2003.
