Prof. JieTai YUM.Sc. USTC; Ph.D. Notre Dame 

Research Interests 

The research areas of JieTai Yu are commutative algebra,
noncommutative algebra, and affine algebraic geometry.
Joint with his collaborators, JieTai Yu has settled a few
longstanding open problems in these areas:
Solved Bergman's Embedding Problem for free associative algebras (IJAC 2003 and BLNS 2003), settled the the strong Nagata Conjecture (PNAS 2004), strong Anick Conjecture (PNAS 2006/JEMS 2007), obtained a sharp lower degree bound for subalgebras generated by two elements of a free associative algebra (JEMS 2008/J.Algeba 2012), solved the zLifting Problem (Selecta Math 2011) and the zStable Tameness Problem (Selecta Math 2012). JieTai Yu is on the editorial boards of Serdica Mathematical Journal (Since 2004), Communications in Algebra (Since 2007), and Communications in Mathematical Research (2012). In 2010, JieTai Yu was selected as one of distinguished scholars in the `National 1000 Plan' by the Central Chinese Government.
