Kostas Zygalakis and Richard Norton win 2011 Leslie Fox Prizes

Kostas Zygalakis (OCCAM) and Richard Norton (OxMoS) were awarded second prizes in the 2011 Leslie Fox Prize competition in Numerical Analysis. For details of the prize, and of the prize-winners' talks, see http://www.mims.manchester.ac.uk/events/workshops/FOX2011/ . Kostas works on numerical methods for stochastic differential equations, and Richard works on convergence analysis of planewave expansion methods for Schroedinger operators with discontinuous periodic potentials.
