    [04] Greek mathematician Constantine Dafermos wins top distinction in mathematics

    Greek mathematician Constantine Dafermos has won the prestigious Norbert Wiener Prize for 2016 for his major contribution to the Partial Differential Equations and Physical Continuum, the American organization American Mathematical Society (AMS) which awards it jointly with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics announced on Tuesday.

    ‘he Nobert Wiener Prize is awarded for an outstanding contribution to "applied mathematics in the highest and broadest sense" and is the higherst honour a mathematician can win.

    "The hallmark of the work of Constantine Dafermos is the way it combines deep physical insight and a high degree of mathematical rigor. He is one of the world's top experts in the theory of conservation laws. These fundamental laws express in mathematical terms the fact that, within an isolated physical system, certain quantities do not change when time passes or when the position of the system is changed," AMS said in a press release.

    "This well-deserved award confirms once more the high-level scientific personnel the country has domestically and in the diaspora," said Alternate Minister for Research and Innovation, Costas Fotakis, in a congratulatory letter he sent to Dafermos.

    The ceremony will take place on January 7, 2016 at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle.
