Kevrekidis Awarded SIAM Crawford Prize

Saturday, Jan 17, 2004

Professor of Chemical Engineering Yannis Kevrekidis has been named the recipient of the 2003 J.D. Crawford Prize, sponsored by the Activity Group on Dynamical Systems of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Kevrekidis, who is also a faculty member in the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics, was cited “for his fundamental and innovative framework for multiscale computation in complex dynamical systems.” This biennial award, first conferred in 2001, was established in memory of John David Crawford and his fundamental contributions to pattern formation. The prize is awarded to one individual for recent outstanding work on a topic in nonlinear science, and consists of a plaque, a certificate containing the citation, and a cash award of $750, which were presented to Kevrekidis at the biennial SIAM Conference on Dynamical Systems, held in 2003 in Snowbird, Utah.
