Subject: 2001 Babuska Prize Awarded


In December 2001, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the Union
of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the I. Babuska
Prize for the best work in scientific computing submitted by students
and young scientists.

There are two Prize winners for 2001: Dr Jiri Furst (the work honored
is his PhD thesis Numerical solution of transonic flow by the TVD and
ENO schemes defended simultaneously at the Faculty of Mechanical
Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague and
Universite de la Mediterranee in Marseille, France) and Dr Iveta
Mrazova (Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in
Prague, her work honored being named GREN-networks and their adjustment).

A further winner was delivered diploma of honor. The third position
was taken by Dr Ludek Benes from the Faculty of Mechanical
Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague who presented
his PhD thesis Numerical solution of flow in the boundary atmosphere layer.

Further diplomas of honor were delivered to MS theses. The first in
this category, Karel Zacek from the Faculty of Mathematics and
Physics of Charles University in Prague, was honored for his papers
Smoothing the Marmousi model and Optimization of the shape of
Gaussian beams originating from his MS thesis.

The second position was awarded to Vitezslav Adamek (Faculty of
Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen) for his
thesis Interaction of stress waves in bodies with plastic
deformation, the third one to Radek Urbis (Faculty of Mechanical
Engineering of the Technical University in Brno) for his thesis
Stability of a crack in particle reinforced composite materials.

The prize as well as the diplomas are awarded every year and they are
connected with a financial support.

The prize was established in 1994 by an outstanding Czech
mathematician Ivo Babuska. He was born in Prague and after graduating
from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical
University in Prague he started his work in the Mathematical
Institute of the Academy of Sciences. He was appointed professor at
Charles University in Prague in 1968 and since fall 1968 he has been
working in the United States. Since 1995 he is at the Texas Institute
for Computational and Applied Mathematics, University of Texas,
Austin, TX.

His scientific work is focused on numerical and applied mathematics
and computational mechanics, and their use in practice. His results
in the finite element method belong to the fundamentals of the
method. He is the author of several monographs and has initiated
several famous scientific meetings both in Europe and the United States.

In August 2001, the 10th International Conference EQUADIFF on
Differential Equations and Their Applications took place in Prague.
This series of conferences was initiated in 1962 by professors Ivo
Babuska and Jaroslav Kurzweil who were the honorary presidents of the
10th conference.

Subject: SIAM Student Paper Prizes

Principal Guidelines

The SIAM Student Paper Prizes are awarded every year to the
student author(s) of the most outstanding paper(s) submitted
to the SIAM Student Paper Competition. This award is based
solely on the merit and content of the student's
contribution to submitted paper.

The purpose of the Student Paper Prizes is to recognize
outstanding scholarship by students in applied mathematics
or computing.

Selection Procedures


Eligibility is restricted to students in good standing who
have not received their Ph.D. at the time of submitting
their entry or who have completed their degree within one
year of submission of their entry.

Submissions may be based on co-authored papers, provided
that the student's advisor will attest that the student's
work played a pivotal role in the results. A letter from
the student's advisor or department chair must accompany
each entry to verify these conditions.

To enter the competition, a student must submit: (1) an
extended abstract in English of a paper, and (2) a short
biography. The total length of the submitted abstract
(including bibliography) may not exceed five pages. The
student also must submit the complete paper, which will be
used for clarification of any questions the selection
committee may have on the extended abstract. In addition,
the student's advisor or an interested faculty member must
submit a letter describing and evaluating the paper's
contribution to the literature, and the student's role in
the scholarship.

For the 2002 award, all papers and accompanying
documentation must be received at the SIAM office by
March 15, 2002.

Notification of Prize Winner

The SIAM president will notify the recipient(s) at least six
weeks before the award date.

Each recipient is required to present his or her paper at
the meeting where the prizes are awarded; if attending
the meeting poses a serious hardship, an exception may be
granted by the SIAM president.

Description of the Award

Each recipient of the SIAM Student Paper Prize shall receive
a framed certificate and a cash award of $1,000, plus $500 toward
travel expenses.

Please direct your submission and any questions you may have to
