91 professors in mathematics recognized in last 40 years

1980 was the first year the Government issued a decision to recognize professors and associate professors for scientific research and university lecturing.

Ninety-one individuals have been recognized as professors in mathematics so far, including four professors recognized exceptionally. The latter are Ta Quang Buu and Le Van Thiem (prior to 1980), Ngo Bao Chau (2005) and Vu Ha Van (2009).

91 professors in mathematics recognized in last 40 years

Prof Vu Ha Van



Buu and Thiem are the founders of Vietnamese science. The years of granting professorship title is unclear. Meanwhile, Chau and Van are excellent mathematicians living and working overseas.

Of the other 87 professors, there are only two female professors – Hoang Xuan Sinh, who gmreceived the title at the age of 47, in 1980, and Le Thi Thanh Nhan, 45, in 2015.

1980 was the first year the Government issued a decision to recognize professors and associate professors for scientific research and university lecturing.

According to Tia Sang, a prestigious Vietnamese science journal, the number of recognized professors in mathematics is on the decrease.

 

After 1986, because of changes in Vietnam and the world, Vietnam for a long time witnessed a serious lack of lecturers and researchers in mathematics.

The situation has improved recently thanks to the establishment and support of NAFOSTED, a fund supporting scientific research, and the 2010-2020 national mathematics development program, under the Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (VIASM).

The average age of the professors when they got the title was 51.7. The youngest professor, Pham Hoang Hiep, was granted the title in 2017, when he was 35.

The other young professors include Nguyen Quang Dieu (37, 2011), Ngo Viet Trung (38, 1991) and Si Duc Quang (38, 2019). The oldest professor is Do Van Luu, who became a professor at the age of 75 (in 2019).

The average age of professors in mathematics is relatively high, though it is lower than that of professors in other fields.

Of 89 professors working in Vietnam, 13 have passed away. Forty one professors are over 70 years old, or over 60 and they have retired. There are only 35 professors below 70 years old and they are still working.

The average age of the professors is 61, and there are only 11 professors aged below 60. The figure is still too low for tertiary education and basic mathematics in the 4.0 era.

The number of scientific articles by professors partially reflects their working capability. According to MathSciNet, the professor with highest number of articles has 142 articles so far, while the lowest number is 25.

On average, each professor has published 63.6 articles. The majority of articles were published internationally and more than 2/3 of the articles were published on ISI journals. The good news is that all the 35 professors in mathematics are still carrying out scientific research.
