'''Goro Shimura''' (&#24535;&#26449; &#20116;&#37070;, [[1930]] -) is a [[Japan]]ese-[[USA|American]] [[mathematician]], and currently a [[professor]] of [[mathematics]] at [[Princeton University]].<br />
<br />
Shimura was a colleague and a friend of [[Yutaka Taniyama]]. They wrote a book (the first book treatment) on the [[abelian variety of CM-type|complex multiplication of abelian varieties]], an area which in collaboration they had opened up.<br />
<br />
Shimura then wrote a long series of major papers, extending the phenomena found in the theory of complex multiplication and [[modular form]]s to higher dimensions (amongst other results). This work (and other developments it provoked) provided some of the 'raw data' later incorporated into the [[Langlands program]]. It equally brought out the concept, in general, of ''[[Shimura variety]]''; which is the higher-dimensional equivalent of [[modular curve]]. Even to state in general what a Shimura variety is quite a formidable task: they bear, roughly speaking, the same relation to general [[Hodge structure]]s as modular curves do to [[elliptic curve]]s.<br />
<br />
Shimura himself has described his approach as 'phenomenological': his interest is in finding new types of interesting behaviour in the theory of automorphic forms. He also argues for a 'romantic' approach, something he finds lacking in the younger generation of mathematician. The central 'Shimura variety' concept has been tamed (by application of [[Lie group]] and [[algebraic group]] theory, and the extraction of the concept 'parametrises interesting family of Hodge structures' by reference to the [[algebraic geometry]] theory of '[[motive (algebraic geometry)|motives]]', which is still largely conjectural). In that sense his work is now mainstream-for-Princeton; but this assimilation (through [[David Mumford]], [[Pierre Deligne]] and others) hardly includes all of the content.<br />
<br />
He is known to a wider public through the important [[Taniyama-Shimura conjecture]], which implied the famous [[Fermat's last theorem]] as a special case. The conjecture was finally proven in [[1999]].<br />
<br />
His hobby is [[shogi]] problems of extreme length.<br />
