Combinatoricists in the news
The Gavin Brown Prize recognises an outstanding and innovative piece of research in the mathematical sciences published by a member or members of the Society. This year it is awarded to Associate Professor John Bamberg, Professor Michael Giudici and Professor Gordon F. Royle of the University of Western Australia, for their 2010 paper Every flock generalized quadrangle has a hemisystem, published in the prestigious Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society (link).
This Mahony–Neumann-Room Prize, for outstanding contributions to the Society’s research publications, is fittingly named for the founding editors of the three journals published by the society: the Journal, the Bulletin and the ANZIAM Journal. This year, Professor Janusz Brzdęk of AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków is awarded the Prize for his 2014 paper A hyperstability result for the Cauchy equation, appearing in the Bulletin of the Australian Mathematical Society (link).
