2008 Ramanujan Prize
Prestigious Math Prize Presented in Oslo
ICTP presented its 2008 Srinivasa Ramanujan Prize to Enrique R. Pujals, associate researcher at the Instituto Nacional de Matemática Pura e Aplicada (IMPA), Brazil, at a ceremony held at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters in Oslo on 20 May. The prize, which carries a US$15,000 cash award, is funded by the Academy through the Niels Henrik Abel Memorial Fund, with the cooperation of IMU.
Professor Pujals has been awarded the Prize in recognition of "his outstanding contributions to dynamical systems, especially the characterization of robust dynamics for flows and transformations and the development of a theory of generic systems."
The ceremony was held during festivities honouring this year's Abel Prize winner. For more details about the Ramanujan Prize, please visit the ICTP website at http://prizes.ictp.it/Ramanujan.
