Maths Prize for Massey Prof

Professor Robert McLachlan of Massey University has become the first mathematician from the Southern Hemisphere to win the prestigious Dahlquist Prize. Presented by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), the Prize is awarded to a young scientist for original contributions to fields associated with Germund Dahlquist, a pioneering figure in the study of differential equations. McLachlan was recognised by SIAM for “his outstanding contributions to geometric integration and composition methods”. He received the award at the Society’s annual conference in St Malo, France, after a three-month term as Visiting Fellow at Cambridge University’s Isaac Newton Institute.
