Hua Loo-ken; address; Chinese Academy of Sciences; mathematics; independent innovation
Right before the establishment of the Institute of Mathematics of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in July of 1952, Hua Loo-ken, newly appointed director of the institute, addressed the audience on the institute's strategic objective, research fields, training of the young scholars, etc., which was in fact not only a programmatic documents for construction of the Institute of Mathematics but also a blueprint for development of mathematics in China after 1949. According to a recently discovered manuscript of the address, this study analyses the main ideas in Hua's address with its far-reaching impacts to the advance of mathematical researches in CAS, and introduces in particular the innovative achievements contributed by mathematicians from the CAS of historical significance for progress of science and technology in the People's Republic of China.
