Hang Lung Mathematics Awards 2018

Date: 20/12/2018

Fong Ho Leung, a 2018 graduate, received an Honorable Mention Award at the Hang Lung Mathematics Awards 2018 event, which is a biennial mathematics research competition co-organized by Hang Lung Properties and The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Participants of this competition had to carry out a mathematics research project and write a research report. The report was then evaluated in a rigorous, multi-step review process that is comparable to how articles in a scientific journal are reviewed prior to publishing. Finalists were invited to participate in an oral defense, which is modeled after a doctoral dissertation defense, before a Scientific Committee of renowned international mathematicians. This year, a total of 260 students forming over 90 teams from nearly 60 schools joined this competition. We are proud that Fong Ho Leung unlocked his potential and received the honorable mention. Congratulations!
