Warm congratulations to Bill Morton, who has won the 2010 De Morgan Medal.
The De Morgan Medal is the most prestigious prize of the London Mathematical Society (LMS)
Professor Morton’s work concerns understanding the flow of liquids and his results have influenced a wide range of fields, from weather forecasting to the design of power stations and from the development of aircraft engines to the growth of scientific computing.
LMS president Professor Angus MacIntyre FRS, said, “A hallmark of Professor Morton's work is the creation of original, elegant mathematics in the service of real-world applications. The London Mathematical Society is proud to honour a mathematician who has changed the way we look at the numerical analysis of partial differential equations through his world-leading research results, his vision and his dynamic leadership qualities.”
