Dr Josef Dick has been announced as the co-winner (with Friedrich Pillichshammer) of the 2013 Prize for Achievement in Information Based Complexity (IBC).
Among other research achievements, Josef Dick and Friedrich Pillichshammer are co-authors of a 600-page monograph published by Cambridge University Press in 2010.
The IBC Prize is in part a recognition of the importance of this book. As of May 2013, it is ranked by MathSciNet in the top 100 of the most cited publications in mathematics of 2010.
Dr Josef Dick is a Senior Lecturer and QEII Fellow in the School. He received the 2012 Christopher Heyde medal, which is a prestigious award of the Academy of Science for distinguished research by a person under the age of 40. He was recognised for his work in numerical integration.
In October, Dr Josef Dick will attend the Workshop on Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Austria, where he will be presented with a plaque as part of his IBC Prize.
A very big congratulations to Josef for this impressive achievement.
