    Lennart Carleson and the Machine of Mathematics – 2006 Abel Prize Laureate

    Interview conducted and edited by Wylder Green of the HLFF Communications Team. Lennart Carleson received the Abel Prize in 2006 "for his profound and seminal contributions to harmonic analysis and the theory of smooth dynamical systems." How did you become aware of the Heidelberg Laureate Forum? I heard of your initiative first from my colleagues in Norway and was of course aware of the analogous Nobel activity. With your career already firmly established, was receiving the Abel Prize expected? I... Read more (more)

    The 3rd HLF – Through the Looking Glass

    Wylder Green, HLFF press team member: Atmosphere defines interaction, and the 3rd Heidelberg Laureate Forum did not allow that truth to evade it. The cornerstone of the HLF is creating an informal environment for scientific communication to flourish. Lectures from the laureates held in the auditorium carried on into the hallways as the energy from a compilation of such great minds reverberated throughout the building and shadowed the participants for the entire week. The 3rd HLF surpassed our expectations, a... Read more (more)

    Fred Brooks on Software Engineers and Teams

    It has been over a week since the end of HLF, and I've been settling back into my life as a software developer at Shopify in Ottawa, Canada.  I often find myself thinking back to what I consider to be an epic conversation with laureate Fred Brooks.  With my husband and fellow blogger, Andrew Carmichael, I interviewed Brooks in what was a joint effort.  Brooks was kind enough to spend over an hour with us.  Since I can't possibly share everything...

    Casual Attire and Formal Proof

    Informality is the watchword here at the Heidelberg Laureate Forum. Even the most distinguished participants go by Bob or Fred or Len rather than Herr Professor Doktor. In this casual social atmosphere, however, formality of another kind has been a major topic of conversation. Four of the week's plenary lectures have addressed the need for formal proofs of correctness in both computer science and mathematics. Tony Hoare gave an eloquent talk reclaiming two giants of Greek antiquity as part of... Read more (more)
