Prize Description


Prize Description

The Peter Henrici Prize is awarded every four years at the International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) jointly by ETH Zurich and SIAM. It is awarded for original contributions to applied analysis and numerical analysis and/or for exposition appropriate for applied mathematics and scientific computing. The award is intended to recognize broad and extended contributions to these subjects more than for a single outstanding work.


Eligibility Criteria

The prize may be awarded to any member of the scientific community who meets the general guideline of the prize description.


Required Materials

  • Nominator’s letter of recommendation for candidate
  • Candidate's CV
  • Two or three letters of support from experts in the field
