School of Mathematics Professor Haomin Zhou has been named one of two recipients of the 2019 Feng Kang Prize. The prize is awarded every two years to Chinese mathematicians working in computational mathematics.
The award recognizes Zhou's contributions in two areas: the development of computational method based on wavelets and partial differential equations for signal/image procesing and the theory of optimal transport on graphs and its applications to engineering.
Winners are selected by the Institute of Computational Mathematics and Scientific/Engineering Computing of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in Beijing. The prize is named after Feng Kang, the famous mathematician and physicist who pioneered Chinese computational mathematics.
Zhou shares the 2019 prize with Jun Hu, a mathematics professor in Peking University, in Beijing.
