Three academics in the School of Mathematics have won prestigious prizes from two major learned societies for mathematics.
Dr Corinna Ulcigrai has been awarded a European Mathematical Society prize for advancing understanding of dynamical systems and the mathematical characterisations of chaos, and especially for solving a long-standing fundamental question on the mixing property for locally Hamiltonian surface flows.
Bristol’s mathematicians have an impressive record in scooping LMS awards: last year Professor Jon Keating, FRS won the Froehlich Prize, and Professor Jens Marklof and Dr Harald Helfgot won Whitehead Prizes. Dr Tim Browning and Dr Nina Snaith have also all won Whitehead Prizes in recent years.
