The joint winners of the Butcher Award in Numerical Analysis at SCiCADE
Thomas Schmelzer, a student Nick Trefethen at the University
of Oxford, and
Anders Hansen, a student of Arieh Iserles at the University
The John Butcher Award in Numerical Analysis has been established
to recognise John's long and productive career in numerical analysis,
and in particular in the numerical solution of ordinary differential
equations. He is well known in the international community for his
contributions in this area.
In 1966, John was appointed Professor of Mathematics and Head of
the Mathematics department at the University of Auckland. Apart from
a period of ten years as inaugural Professor of the Computer Science
department, he has been associated with the Auckland Mathematics department
In keeping with John's consistent encouragement of students, the
award is for the best student talk at SciCADE, considering both the
academic merit of the content and the presentation itself.
The John Butcher Award in Numerical Analysis and the associated funds
are administered by the NZ branch of ANZIAM.
