**Subject: 2001 Babuska Prize Awarded**

2001 BABUSKA PRIZE AWARDED

In December 2001, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the Union

of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the I. Babuska

Prize for the best work in scientific computing submitted by students

and young scientists.

There are two Prize winners for 2001: Dr Jiri Furst (the work honored

is his PhD thesis Numerical solution of transonic flow by the TVD and

ENO schemes defended simultaneously at the Faculty of Mechanical

Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague and

Universite de la Mediterranee in Marseille, France) and Dr Iveta

Mrazova (Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in

Prague, her work honored being named GREN-networks and their adjustment).

A further winner was delivered diploma of honor. The third position

was taken by Dr Ludek Benes from the Faculty of Mechanical

Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague who presented

his PhD thesis Numerical solution of flow in the boundary atmosphere layer.

Further diplomas of honor were delivered to MS theses. The first in

this category, Karel Zacek from the Faculty of Mathematics and

Physics of Charles University in Prague, was honored for his papers

Smoothing the Marmousi model and Optimization of the shape of

Gaussian beams originating from his MS thesis.

The second position was awarded to Vitezslav Adamek (Faculty of

Applied Sciences of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen) for his

thesis Interaction of stress waves in bodies with plastic

deformation, the third one to Radek Urbis (Faculty of Mechanical

Engineering of the Technical University in Brno) for his thesis

Stability of a crack in particle reinforced composite materials.

The prize as well as the diplomas are awarded every year and they are

connected with a financial support.

The prize was established in 1994 by an outstanding Czech

mathematician Ivo Babuska. He was born in Prague and after graduating

from the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical

University in Prague he started his work in the Mathematical

Institute of the Academy of Sciences. He was appointed professor at

Charles University in Prague in 1968 and since fall 1968 he has been

working in the United States. Since 1995 he is at the Texas Institute

for Computational and Applied Mathematics, University of Texas,

Austin, TX.

His scientific work is focused on numerical and applied mathematics

and computational mechanics, and their use in practice. His results

in the finite element method belong to the fundamentals of the

method. He is the author of several monographs and has initiated

several famous scientific meetings both in Europe and the United States.

In August 2001, the 10th International Conference EQUADIFF on

Differential Equations and Their Applications took place in Prague.

This series of conferences was initiated in 1962 by professors Ivo

Babuska and Jaroslav Kurzweil who were the honorary presidents of the

10th conference.
