Peter Lax Award
The Scientific Committee of HYP2020 decided to institute the ‘Peter Lax Award’ in honour of Lax’s seminal contributions, which laid the foundations of modern theory and computation in the area of hyperbolic conservation laws.
This distinction will be awarded to a young researcher (10 years within the PhD) in every HYP Conference. The awardee will be invited to give a distinguished plenary lecture at the conference.
After a careful selection process, the Scientific Committee has decided to distinguish with the second Peter Lax Award to Maria Colombo (EPFL, Switzerland).
Lecture: Non-uniqueness of Leray solutions of the forced Navier-Stokes equations.
Chair: Eitan Tadmor (University of Maryland – USA)
James Glimm Lecture
The Scientific Committee of HYP2020 decided to institute a special lecture to be held as part of every HYP conference, named the “James Glimm Lecture” in honour of Glimm’s fundamental and original ideas, which revolutionized research in the area of hyperbolic conservation laws.
The second James Glimm Lecturer will be Benoît Perthame (Sorbonne-Université, France).
Lecture: Structured equations in biology; entropy and Monge-Kantorovich distance.
Chair: Alberto Bressan (Penn State University – USA)
