Professor Michael Brin of the University of Maryland has endowed an international prize for outstanding work in the theory of dynamical systems and related areas. The prize will be given for specific mathematical achievements that appear as a single or a series of publications in refereed journals, proceedings or monographs.
The goal of the prize is to recognize mathematicians who have made substantial impact in the field at an early stage of their careers. Normally the recipients should be no more than twelve years from Ph.D.
The Prize Guidelines are available here.
The third Michael Brin Prize, sponsored by the Center for Dynamics and Geometry at Penn State, will be awarded on Saturday, October 22nd 2011, as part of the Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics.
The second Michael Brin Prize was awarded to Dmitry Dolgopyat in 2009.
The first Michael Brin Prize was awarded to Giovanni Forni in 2008.
