Björn Sandstede receives the Jack K. Hale Award in Dynamical Systems and Differential Equations
Professor Bjorn Sandstede, Chair of the Division of Applied Mathematics, has been chosen as the first recipient of Elsevier's Jack K. Hale Award in Dynamical Systems and Differential Equations. This biennial award,established in 2013, seeks to distinguish researchers who have dedicated themselves to the field of dynamical systems and differential equations.
The award is named for Jack K. Hale, the deeply respected and longtime editor-in-chief of Elsevier's Journal of Differential Equations. Hale was also a professor of Applied Mathematics at Brown University's Division of Applied Mathematics. His mathematical genuis and dedication solidified the development dynamical systems and contorl theory in America, and established the Lefschetz Center for Dynamical Systems at Brown University as the the premier research center for dynamical systems and differential equations in the world.
To quote from the committee, "You were unanimously selected by the committee to receive the inaugural award due your influential works in the dynamical systems community and beyond, transforming theoretical and computational approaches to spatially extended dynamical systems."
