Person: Perrin-Riou, Bernadette
Bernadette Perrin-Riou is a French mathematician who has made important contributions to number theory. She was awarded the 1999 Ruth Lyttle Satter Prize from the American Mathematical Society.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
- The small-scale, personal atmosphere was well suited to Perrin-Riou, and she found that she liked to delve deeply into subjects.
- Perrin-Riou completed her undergraduate studies in 1977 and began to undertake research.
- In 1983, following the award of her doctorate, Perrin-Riou was appointed Maître de Conférences at the Pierre et Marie Curie University.
- At the International Congress of Mathematicians at Zürich in 1994, Perrin-Riou gave the invited address p-adic L-functions.
- In this volume, Perrin-Riou presents a theory of p-adic L-functions coming directly from p-adic Galois representations (or, more generally, from motives).
- The work described in this text led to Perrin-Riou being awarded several major prizes.
- In 2001 Perrin-Riou published another major text Théorie d'Iwasawa des Representations p-adiques Semi-Stables Ⓣ(Iwasawa Theory of p-adic semi-stable representations).
Born 1 August 1955, Les Vans, Ardèche, France.
