Leslie Greengard Awarded the 2023 ICIAM Pioneer Prize
Professor Leslie Greengard has been named as the winner of the 2023 ICIAM Pioneer Prize. First awarded in 1999, the Pioneer Prize "was established to acknowledge pioneering work that introduces applied mathematical methods and scientific computing techniques to an industrial problem area or a new scientific field of application," according Siam News.
Professor Greengard was chosen as the 2023 winner for his pioneering work on fast algorithms including the fast multipole method (one of the top-ten algorithms of the 20th century), fast Gauss transform, and fast direct solvers; and for the development of innovative high-order, automatically adaptive algorithms for differential and integral equations. You can read more about this accomplishment—and the committee that selected Professor Greengard—at the ICIAM website.
We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to Professor Greengard on this tremendous honor!
