Shantao Liao, Chinese mathematician (Hengshan,
Hunan Province 04 January 1920 – Beijing 06 June 1997)Proposed the concepts of standard
systems of differential equations and obstruction sets Introduced the concepts of canonical
differential equations and minimal distortion sets Proved that
there is always a fixed point under any periodic transformation in the
four-dimensional Euclidean space Introduced the symmetrization method
of fibre bundles Derived a formula for the secondary
obstruction class in sphere bundles Derived a formula for the relative
extension and homology classification of the secondary obstruction class First gave the correct proof of C’
closing lemma (1979) Proposed some conjectures regarding
characters and stability of certain systems Introduced Liao lemma An existence theorem for periodic orbits. Acta Sci. Natur. Univ. Pekinensis 1-20, 1979 |
