Why they love to work in Paris

Here you can find a series of interviews of non-French mathematicians who speak about their experience visiting and working in Paris:
Professor Manjul Bhargava is Professor of Mathematics at Princeton University,  Professor of Number Theory at Leiden University, and holds Adjunct Professorships at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, and the University of Hyderabad. He has made leading contributions towards number theory and arithmetic geometry.
Bhargava was awarded the Fields Medal at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Seoul 2014. 

Timothy Gowers is a Britsh mathematician. He received the Prize of the European Mathematical Society in 1996 and the Fields medal for research on  functional analysis and bombinatorics at International Congress of Mathematicians, Berlin 1998.


Professor Masaki Kashiwara is Profesor emeritus in Mathematics at the Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyoto University. He has made leading contributions towards algebraic analysis, microlocal analysis, D-module theory, Hodge theory, sheaf theory and representation theory. Professor Kashiwara was awarded the Iyanaga prize by Mathematics Society Japan, the Asahi prize  and the Japan Academy prize. He is a member of the Japan Academy and of the French Academy of Sciences. He was Vice-President of the IMU from 2003 to 2006.
