25.09.13 - Assyr Abdulle has been awarded the 2013 Germund Dahlquist Prize for his research in numerical analysis of multiscale differential equations.

Assyr Abdulle, full Professor of Mathematics at EPFL, is the 2013 Germund Dahlquist Prize laureate.

This prestigious prize by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), established in 1995, is awarded every two years for original contributions to fields associated with Germund Dahlquist, especially the numerical solution of differential equations and numerical methods for scientific computing.
Assyr Abdulle is being recognized 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. The citation states that 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.

Assyr Abdulle holds the Chair of Computational Mathematics and Numerical Analysis (ANMC) at the Mathematics Institute of Computational Science and Engineering (MATHICSE). His research interests are in numerical methods, modeling and numerical analysis of multiscale partial differential equations, and stiff stochastic differential equations.

The prize was awarded at the International Conference on Scientific Computation and Differential Equations (SciCADE 2013) held September 16-22, 2013 in Valladolid, Spain.

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is an international society of over 14,000 individual members, including applied and computational mathematicians and computer scientists, as well as other scientists and engineers. SIAM has been founded in 1952 to foster strong interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, publication of journals and books, conferences and prizes.
