**Xianke Zhang** (张贤科, born 1941) is a Chinese mathematician, professor and author at the Shenzhen Graduate School of Harbin Institute of Technology..^{[1]}

## Academic Career[edit]

Zhang was among the first professors in China to join the renown Southern University of Science and Technology (SusTech)^{[2]}. Before that, he was a professor in Tsinghua University for 14 years^{[3]}. He moved to the Shenzhen Graduate School of Harbin Institute of Technology in 2016.

### Posts Held[edit]

Zhang was made a Visiting Scholar at the University of Maryland in the United States in 1987 until 1987. He became a Professor at Tsuing Hua University in China in 1993, a post he left in 2011. Zhang was also made a Scientist at the Abdus Salam International Cemtre for Theoretical Physics in Italy in 1991, before being appointed the Senior Scientist in 1999. He still holds this position.

### Contribution in Chinese Education[edit]

Zhang is known in particular for his artistic integration of traditional culture into teaching. He is the author of several well-known mathematics textbooks, including *Introduction to Algebra Number Theory* (代数数论导引)^{[4]}, *Advanced Algebra* (高等代数学)^{[5]}, *Advanced Linear Algebra* (高等线性代数)^{[6]}^{[7]}, *Elementary Number Theory* (初等数论)^{[8]}. He is also the author of *Advanced Algebra Method*(高等代数解题方法)^{[9]} and *Famous Greek Problems and Modern Mathematics* (古希腊命题与现代数学)^{[10]}.

His teaching belief was influenced by Luogeng Hua, a pioneering Chinese mathematician who also graduated from the University of Science and Technology of China^{[11]}.

## Awards[edit]

### National awards[edit]

- 'National Natural Science' Award (China, 1989)

- 'Chinese PhD for Distinguished Contribution' Award (China, 1991) (“做出突出贡献的中国博士学位获得者”奖)

- 'Advancing Science Award - Chinese Academy of Science' (China, 1988)

### Other awards[edit]

Zhang has received multiple from the city of Beijing, province of Anhui, Qsing Hua University, University of Science and Technology of china, China Baowu Steel Group.
