Professor Irena Lasiecka of the University of Virginia is the 2011 recipient of the W. T. and Idalia Reid Prize, which is awarded annually by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for outstanding work in, or other contributions to, the broadly defined areas of differential equations and control theory. Established by SIAM in 1993, the prize is awarded either for a single notable achievement or a collection of such achievements.
Dr. Lasiecka is being recognized for her fundamental contributions in control and optimization theory, specifically for work in dynamical systems governed by partial differential equations and their applications. Read the rest of this entry »
Professor David E. Keyes of Columbia University and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia has been awarded the SIAM Prize for Distinguished Service to the Profession.
Dr. Keyes is being recognized by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for his leadership and long-term advocacy of high performance computing and computational science and engineering. Among other things, he has served on advisory committees for the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

Professor Gunther Uhlmann of the University of California, Irvine and the University of Washington was awarded the 2011 Ralph E. Kleinman Prize for his insightful and deep contributions to the theory of inverse problems.
Established in 1998, the Ralph E. Kleinman prize is awarded every other year by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) for notable research or other contributions that help bridge the gap between mathematics and applications. It rewards work that uses high-level mathematics or invents new mathematical tools to solve relevant problems in engineering, science, and technology. Read the rest of this entry »
Professor Bjorn Engquist from the University of Texas at Austin is the 2011 recipient of the Peter Henrici Prize. He is being recognized for his fundamental contributions to applied and computational mathematics, scientific computing, and applications to engineering and the sciences, which have had a major impact in various areas of applied and computational mathematics.
Dr. Engquist delivered the award’s associated lecture, the Peter Henrici Prize Lecture on Wednesday, July 20, and received a cash award of $5,000 along with a framed, hand-calligraphed certificate at the CAIMS/Mprime/SIAM Awards Lunch the following day, both held as part of the 7th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2011).

Professor Ingrid Daubechies of Duke University gave The John von Neumann Lecture on Monday, July 18, at the 7th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2011) held last week in Vancouver, British Columbia. This is the highest honor awarded by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Her lecture, titled Sparsity in Signal Analysis and in Computation, gave an overview of sparse representations, presentations of functions and objects that manage to be both accurate and succinct. Dr. Daubechies’s lecture covered mathematical insights that can be applied to obtain sparse representations through the choice of wavelet and other bases, as well as the construction of such representations through mathematical tools and analysis.
