SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize winners recognized at SIAM Annual Meeting

July 14, 2008

Each year, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) awards SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes to the authors of exceptional papers published in SIAM journals. Papers are selected for their originality, and they should bring a fresh look at an existing field or open up new areas of applied mathematics. Winning papers have been published during the three years prior to the year of the award.

SIAM is pleased to announce the winners of the 2008 SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes:
