Germund Dahlquist Prize

The prize was established in 1995, and named in honor of Germund Dahlquist for his early contributions to the theory of numerical analysis as applied to differential equations. It is awarded for original contributions to fields associated with his work.

Next Call for Nominations Opens: May 1, 2024

Prize Description


Prize Description

The Germund Dahlquist Prize is awarded every two years to one individual for original contributions to numerical solution of differential equations and numerical methods for scientific computing.


Eligibility Criteria

The candidate must have no more than 18 years (full time equivalent) of involvement in mathematics since PhD at the award date, allowing for breaks in continuity. The prize committee can make exceptions, if in their opinion the candidate is at an equivalent stage in their career. 

For the 2025 award, the candidate’s PhD must have been received in 2007 or later.


Required Materials

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

Attend the Meeting

The Germund Dahlquist Prize will next be awarded at ICIAM 2023.

Citation

The 2019 Germund Dahlquist Prize is awarded to Houman Owhadi for his varied, original, and deep work in areas of computational mathematics that include homogenization, stochastic differential equations, game theoretic approaches to numerical analysis, stochastic variational integrators, and uncertainty quantification. His substantial contributions to these challenging topics have had great impact in the broad fields of scientific computing, practical numerical methods, and machine learning.

Citation

The2017 Germund Dahlquist Prize is awarded to Per-Gunnar Martinsson for fundamental contributions to numerical analysis and scientific computing that are making a significant impact in data science applications. Specific contributions include his development of linear time algorithms for dense matrix operations related to multidimensional elliptic PDEs and integral equations; and he has made deep and innovative contributions to the development of probabilistic algorithms for the rapid solution of certain classes of large-scale linear algebra problems.

Citation

The 2015 Germund Dahlquist Prize is awarded to Erwan Faou for his excellent research contributions to the longtime analysis of stochastic differential equations, to multiscale expansions, and to molecular simulations. Particularly striking is his work on geometrical numerical methods for Hamiltonian partial differential equations where, like Dahlquist, he relates stability to local accuracy. Faou’s work is characterized by a deep insight in both the mathematical and the physical aspects of the problem under investigation.

Citation

The 2013 Germund Dahlquist Prize is awarded to Assyr Abdulle for research contributions to the numerical analysis of stiff differential equations, to multiscale methods for partial and stochastic differential equations and to the implementation of numerical algorithms to problems in chemistry and biology. His work demonstrates the best in numerical analysis, from the design of novel numerical algorithms to their rigorous mathematical analysis to an ingenious implementation in a range of important applications.
