Min RuProfessor

My research work primarily concerns Complex and algebraic geometry, Diophantine approximation and Differential geometry. Before joining UH, I was Benjamin Peirce Assistant Professor at Harvard University. I also served as Assistant Professor (20002002) at the National University of Singapore (my name was mentioned in Milestones of the Math. Dept., NUS (Notable Publications)). In 1999, I received the University of Houston Research and Scholarship Excellence Award . In 2018, I was elected as Fellow of the American Mathematical Society. The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program (see Fellows) recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.
I was brought to Notre Dame from China in 1986 directly by my supervisor Prof. Wilhelm Stoll (without taking the TOEFL and GRE exams). This is what my supervisor, Wilhelm Stoll, wrote in the preface of his book (Value distribution theory in several complex variables): ``.... At this time, I met Min Ru, a young bright graduate student in Shanghai. I was able to bring him to Notre Dame. Within three years, he found the way to a proof of the defect relation which gives the exact bound". During my graduate study, I published four papers, in Inventiones Mathematicae, Journal of Differential Geometry,, Journal of Geometric Analysis, and Bulletin of the Australian Math. Soc., respectively. Google scholar Min Ru
