“The Lady Gaga of French Mathematicians”

Lin-Cédric-Villani-690-558-14131212

If that title isn’t enough to peak your interest then I don’t know what is.  I’m interested in checking out his new book, recently translated into English and available in the US for the first time.

From the New Yorker:  http://www.newyorker.com/tech/elements/cedric-villani-france-famous-mathematician-birth-theorem

Badging:  Read the article.  Explain in a paragraph what makes this guy like Lady Gaga.  Explain in a second paragraph any important math work he’s done or is currently working on.
