Clement W. H. Lam
Clement Wing Hong Lam (Chinese: 林永康) is a Canadian mathematician, specializing in combinatorics. He is famous for the computer proof, with Larry Thiel and S. Swiercz, of the nonexistence of a finite projective plane of order 10.
In 2006 he received the Euler medal. In 1992 he received the Lester Randolph Ford Award for the article The search for a finite projective plane of order 10. The eponymous Lam's problem is equivalent to finding a finite projective plane of order 10 or finding 9 orthogonal Latin squares of order 10.
