Why does Peking University math God carry mineral water everywhere? Because of environmental protection

A few days ago, the math God of Peking University was interviewed with steamed bread mineral water and became popular on the Internet. The God in the video seems to be ugly, but he is really a god like figure of Peking University. He won two times of International Mathematics Olympiad champion, recommended Peking University, and stayed in school as an assistant professor after graduation.

The most difficult part of the 2008 International Mathematical Olympiad is the final plane geometry problem, but Wei Shen's method is pure algebra, and the solution is as long as 4 pages. Wei Shen also lived up to expectations and won the full mark gold medal of IMO in 2008. That year, there were only three full marks in the world. As soon as Wei Shen was born, he stood on the top of the world.

A year later, Wei Shen won full marks in all the competitions he participated in: China Mathematics Olympiad (CMO), national training team test, IMO. He is the only full score in the test history of the national training team so far, and also one of the only two full scores of IMO in the world in 2009.

When tens of thousands of students of Peking University walk on campus, you can recognize Wei Shen at a glance, because no matter in spring, summer, autumn and winter, he carries a 1.5L mineral water bottle and walks like a flying horse. In the bottle is the warm water provided by the school. I heard that someone asked him why, and the answer was environmental protection.

After graduating from the University, Wei Shen stayed in the International Mathematics center of Peking University and studied mathematics under academician Tian Gang.

In just three and a half years, he got his doctorate and is now an assistant professor at Peking University. Since August 2015, Wei Shen has completed 25 academic papers (data from arXiv), most of which have been published in world-class journals.

Behind this brilliance, Wei Shen's hard work and sweat are hard for ordinary people to understand. When I was a doctor, I had the honor to study mathematics under the same roof with Wei Shen. Wei Shen's hard work, love and concentration on mathematics made me feel inferior.
