Person: Honda, Taira
Taira Honda was a Japanese mathematician who made important contributions to number theory.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 These circumstances surely had a strong influence on the mathematical formation of Honda in addition to the personal direction given to him by Tamagawa.
 Honda's next three papers all considered the problem of class numbers of algebraic number fields.
 In this important paper Honda gives a complete classification of Abelian varieties up to isogeny over a finite field.
 An important consequence is that Honda was able to give a short proof of Manin's conjecture about formal groups.
 We have described Honda's mathematical research, which was mainly devoted to the investigation of the arithmetic properties of commutative formal groups.
Born 2 June 1932, Fukui, Japan. Died 15 May 1975, Osaka, Japan.
