## Scoring Play Combinatorial Game Theory

**报告内容简介**

Fraser Stewart left high school at the age of 16 and began studying astrophysics at the University of St.Andrews. He found that physics and astrophysics were not to my liking so in my second year he switched over to mathematics. He graduating with a Bachelors degree in 2005 and went to Canada to study for an MSc at the Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. I originally applied for a PhD but was rejected, but he was accepted to study a PhD in graph theory at the University of Dundee.

After roughly 2 years he was not making any progress with his PhD and had generally lost interest in mathematics, so his supervisor agreed to let him study combinatorial game theory even though he was not really in a position to offer adequate supervision. It was then that he devised his theory for scoring play combinatorial games, however by that point he had found he was more interested in learning Chinese than researching mathematics.

In 2009 he moved to Shanghai to study Chinese for 1 year, after he returned.He still had little to no interest in mathematics so he left to try and pursue a career in translation in Taiwan. But after 3 months of attempting and failing to find work he found his interest in mathematics was reignited, and so he returned to UK where he completed his PhD.
