Popular Mechanics honors Ken Ono and Andrew Booker for the top two math breakthroughs in 2019

Ken Ono and Andrew Booker

In a recent Popular mechanics article UVa faculty member Ken Ono was honored along with co-authors Michael Griffin, Larry Rolen, and Don Zagier for their work on a problem directly related to the Riemann Hypothesis. UVa graduate and McShane Prize winner Andrew Booker was cited along with Andrew Sutherland for work leading to the long-sought integer solutions to $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = 33$ and $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = 42$. Booker will be the speaker at the Math Major dinner on April 16, 2020.
