Professor CN Yang, a friend of CUHK for over half a century and our Distinguished Professor-at-Large, is one of the most important theoretical physicists of the contemporary era, and one of the first Chinese to win the Nobel Prize. Gauge theory and parity non-conservation, both proposed by Professor Yang and collaborators, are now at the heart of modern physics; gauge theory, in particular, will be the basis upon which physics will advance in the next hundred years. As Professor Yang enters the hundredth year of a remarkable life, CUHK is delighted to present the Exhibition "Professor CN Yang at 100: Grand Master of Physics, Stalwart Friend of CUHK", as part of the celebratory activities.
