SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering Awarded

The 2007 SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering was awarded February 20 to Chi-Wang Shu, Professor of Mathematics in the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University.

Shu received the prize "for the development of numerical methods that have had a great impact on scientific computing, including TVD temporal discretizations, ENO and WENO finite difference schemes, discontinuous Galerkin methods, and spectral methods."

The prize is awarded jointly by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

The prize, established in 2002 and first conferred in 2003, is awarded in the area of computational science in recognition of outstanding research contributions to the development and use of mathematical and computational tools and methods for the solution of science and engineering problems; it consists of a hand-calligraphed certificate with the citation and a cash prize of $5,000.

The prize was awarded at the 2007 SIAM Conference on Computer Science and Engineering, held February 2007 in Costa Mesa, California.

The members of the selection committee for the 2007 award were John B. Bell (Chair), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Anthony Ralston, State University of New York at Buffalo; and Mary F. Wheeler, University of Texas at Austin.
