Michael Coons, along with two collaborators, has won the inaugural Mahony-Neumann-Room Prize for the best paper published in the Bulletin of the Australian Mathematical Society during the period 2011-2016.
Their paper was:
Jason P. Bell, Michael Coons and Kevin G. Hare, "The minimal growth of a k-regular sequence", Bulletin of the Australian Mathematical Society 90(2) (2014), 195-203
The prize was announced during the opening session of the Australian Mathematical Society Annual Meeting at Macquarie University on Tuesday 12th December 2017.
Associate Professor Mike Meylan has just been awarded a Visiting Fellowship at Clare Hall of Cambridge University. Meylan is one of 40 leading scholars chosen from many disciplines for the prestigious fellowship over the 2017-2018 academic year. In addition, Visiting Fellows become Life Members of Clare Hall and are welcomed back at any time to participate in college life. Meylan will be studying the vibration of ice shelves, working with Prof. I. David Abrahams, current director of the Isaac Newton Institute and one of the leading figures in applied mathematics in the United Kingdom.
"Most of the Visiting Fellows come from other countries, which makes the community here very culturally rich. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience the academic and cultural life of this amazing university."
Congratulations to all of the CARMA members who have received promotions!
Prof. Chris Kellett, Prof. Steve Weller, Senior Lecturer Elena Prieto and Senior Lecturer Ali Eshragh.
