Professor Qing Xiang has been awarded an invitational fellowship for research in Japan from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS). This fellowship provides supports for Professor Qing Xiang to conduct research with Professor Koji Momihara at Kumamoto University in Japan. During this collaboration they plan to work on "A multidimensional approach toward solving the existence problem of Hadamard matrices".
The JSPS awards invitational fellowships to a select group of excellent researchers from outside Japan to enable scientific research collaboration. Very few are awarded in mathematics; among the 80 fellowships awarded by JSPS under the 2nd recruitment in FY2017, only 4 fellowship recipients are mathematicians, and Professor Qing Xiang is one of them.
With the support of the JSPS fellowship, the collaboration took place in early 2018 over the period January 8, 2018 to February 11, 2018. Professor Qing Xiang and Professor Koji Momihara conducted research on constructions of Hadamard matrices; one research paper was written and submitted during the aforementioned time period.
We congratulate Professor Xiang on this recognition of excellence in research.
