The SIAM activity group on dynamical systems is seeking nominations for the J.D. Crawford Prize. J.D. was a marvelous applied mathematician/theoretical physicist who tragically died in his forties the day before I started my job at the University of Pittsburgh. The deadline is November 15. Thus far, we (I’m on the committee) haven’t received many nominations so the odds are good. So please give us more work and send in your nominations. The information for where to send it is here.
