Cédric Villani’s book tour (cont’d), and a remarkable student

After his UK tour, Cédric Villani will apparently later this month tour the US  (incidentally, it is mathematics awareness month there).

I’ve noticed events occuring in New York City (15th), Seattle (16th), San Francisco (20th), Minneapolis (22nd), Cambridge MA (24th), and perhaps at other places.

While searching for these I came accross a remarkable interview (published today) of Thomas Mordant, a very young and talented french student (4 years ahead of normal age), who happens to have Osteogenesis Imperfecta, has met Villani, and plans to become a mathematician.

Bon courage à lui pour les prochaines épreuves de Normale Sup!

Edit (21 july 2015): the results are out, and well done to him! Ulm at 16 is not so common, an Auroux-esque feat!
