Awards Spotlight: Lexing Ying, Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

Irene Fonseca (right), then-president of SIAM, presents the 2013 Wilkinson Prize to Lexing Ying.
Lexing Ying was recognized as the 2013 recipient of the Wilkinson Prize for his outstanding contributions in many areas, including the rapid evaluation of oscillatory integral transforms, high frequency wave propagation and the computation of electron structure in metallic systems. He is professor of mathematics and a member of the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) at Stanford University. His current research focuses on developing fast and accurate numerical algorithms with applications to acoustics and electromagnetics, computational seismology, computational material sciences, and transport theory.

The James H. Wilkinson Prize in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing aims to stimulate early career researchers and to help advance their professional development. SIAM awards the prize to one researcher who has at most 12 years (full time equivalent) involvement in mathematics since PhD for contributions to numerical analysis and scientific computing during the six years preceding the year of the award. We will present the 2017 award at the SIAM Annual Meeting, July 10-14, 2017 in Pittsburgh, PA. The recipient will be invited to give a plenary lecture at AN17.

SIAM awards the prize every four years. Don’t miss your chance to nominate a colleague for the 2017 award! The deadline is OCTOBER 15, 2016.
