Zheng Zhiming (1953.10—) is a professor and PhD supervisor of the School of Mathematics and Systems Science of Beihang University and a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (elected in 2017).
After receiving his doctor’s degree from Peking University in 1987, he began to teach there and worked as Vice Dean of the School of Mathematical Sciences and Vice Director of the Office of Educational Administration. In 2003, he came to Beihang University, where he has worked as Dean of the School of Advanced Engineering (now known as ShenYuan Honors College) and Vice President.
Prof. Zheng is an expert in the interdisciplinary field of mathematics and information science, and has long been engaging in the relevant research on aerospace information security and complex information systems. He invented dynamics-based codes, the cryptanalysis theory and method derived from the combination of algebra and dynamics, which helped him succeed in developing a new series of aerospace security equipment characterized by high speed, low energy consumption and multiple modes. He also brought forward the theory and method of regulating system complexity and a new calculation model for rapid information transmission, global information diffusion and accurate data analysis, all of which have a profound influence on the international academia.
He has won a first prize of the State Technological Invention Award, the Ho Leung Ho Lee Prize for Scientific and Technological Progress, a first prize of the Natural Science Award of the Ministry of Education, the Technological Invention Award for National Defense, etc.
