HKBU mathematician Professor Michael Ng recognised for distinguished achievement in scientific computing

浸大數學家吳國寶教授獲科學計算獎

Professor Michael Ng Kwok-po, Head and Chair Professor of the Department of Mathematics of HKBU, has been awarded the 12th Feng Kang Prize of Scientific Computing by the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Professor Ng was selected in recognition of his significant contributions in numerical linear algebra for solving structured linear systems, mathematical and computational methods in image processing. He will be presented with the honour during the General Assembly of the China Society for Computational Mathematics to be held in Xian, China, from 21 to 23 July.

Professor Ng said, “Most areas of science, engineering and medicine are becoming dependent on mathematical and computational methodologies. I would like to encourage students to become scientists who can move easily between disciplines and deal with the complexity of problems.’’

Professor Ng’s research endeavours cover scientific computing, numerical algebra and imaging sciences. His research has a variety of applications, including in data science and bioinformatics.

This year, Professor Ng and Professor Ruo Li of Peking University received the honour. The Feng Kang Prize of Scientific Computing has been awarded to young Chinese scientists in China and abroad every two years since 1995 for their significant contributions to scientific computing.

The Prize is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Feng Kang, the founder and pioneer of Chinese computational mathematics, whose work on sympletic methods was awarded the First Prize of National Natural Science Award of China.

浸大數學系系主任及講座教授吳國寶教授,獲中國科學院數學與系統科學研究院頒授第12屆「馮康科學計算獎」,表彰他在數值線性代數求解結構化的線性系統,圖像處理中的數學和計算方法的傑出貢獻。吳教授將於7月21至23日在西安舉行的中國計算數學年會上獲授予獎項。

吳教授說:「科學、工程和醫學的多個領域都與數學和計算學方法息息相關。我鼓勵同學立志成為科學家,解決跨學科的複雜難題。」

吳教授的研究專長包括科學計算、數值代數和圖像科學。他的研究可廣泛應用到數據科學和生物資訊學等議題。

今年,吳國寶教授與北京大學李若教授同獲馮康科學計算獎。該獎項自1995年起每兩年頒授給年輕的中國學者及在海外的中國學者,嘉許他們在科學計算的傑出貢獻。

獎項為紀念已故中國計算數學的開拓者馮康先生,他提出的辛幾何計算方法的優秀成果曾獲頒發國家自然科學一等獎。
