Author Biography


Terence Tao was born in Adelaide, Australia, in 1975. In 1987, 1988, and 1989 he competed in the International Mathematical Olympiad for the Australian team, winning a bronze, silver, and gold medal respectively, and being the youngest competitor ever to win a gold medal at this event. Since 2000, Terence has been a full professor of mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.
