  In February 2021, Professor Chen Gao’s paper "J Equation and Supercritical Hermit-Yang Zhenning-Mills Equation Deformation" was published in one of the four highest mathematics magazines "New Advances in Mathematics", which attracted the attention of the international mathematics community. It was cited for the first time by Lawson, a member of the National Academy of Sciences.

  The Dharma Academy Green Orange Award started in August 2018. It is the industry's first nonprofit academic selection for the discovery of young Chinese scholars.
