SIAM outstanding paper prize winners recognized at SIAM Annual Meeting

July 14, 2008

Each year, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) awards SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes to the authors of exceptional papers published in SIAM journals. Papers are selected for their originality, and they should bring a fresh look at an existing field or open up new areas of applied mathematics. Winning papers have been published during the three years prior to the year of the award.

SIAM is pleased to announce the winners of the 2008 SIAM Outstanding Paper Prizes:

The Discontinuity Set of Solutions of the TV Denoising Problem and Some Extensions
Published in Multiscale Modeling and Simulation, Vol. 6, No. 3 (2007)
Authors: Vicent Caselles, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain; Antonin Chambolle, Ecole Polytechnique, CNRS Palaiseau, France; Matteo Novaga, University of Pisa, Italy

Each recipient received a monetary award during the 2008 SIAM Annual Meeting, July 7-11, in San Diego, California. Recipients also receive funds toward travel expenses and gratis registration for the meeting. Members of the 2008 selection committee were Robert Pego, Carnegie Mellon University (Chair); Jorge Nocedal, Northwestern University; and Eva Tardos, Cornell University. Each committee member is an editor-in-chief of or is active on the editorial boards of SIAM journals.
