Class for mathematics (I)
Dr. Oded Schramm is a mathematician at Microsoft Research Redmond in USA. His most important work is probably the introduction and profound study of SLE (Stochastic Loewner Evolution), which in a totally new way connects probability theory and complex analysis. This work is one of the biggest advances in probability theory in many years.
