浸大數學家吳國寶教授 當選2017年美國工業與應用數學學會院士

Professor Michael Ng Kwok-po, Head and Chair Professor of the Department of Mathematics of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) was named 2017 Fellow of the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). Professor Ng is the only Asian fellow this year among 28 fellows selected from institutions worldwide. He will be presented with the honour during the SIAM Annual Meeting to be held in July 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

The fellowship will be conferred on Professor Ng in recognition of his fundamental contributions to algorithms for structured linear systems and image processing. Professor Ng served as Associate Editor of SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing, SIAM Keynote Speaker of the 14th Conference of the International Linear Algebra Society, and the Secretary of East Asia SIAM Section, among other leadership positions, including co-chairing multiple SIAM conferences.

Since the SIAM fellowship programme began in 2009, there have only been 15 Asian fellows.

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics is an international society of more than 14,000 individual, academic and corporate members from 85 countries. The Fellows were selected for their exemplary research as well as outstanding service to the community. Through their contributions, SIAM Fellows help to advance the fields of applied mathematics and computational science.

香港浸會大學數學系系主任及講座教授吳國寶教授,當選2017年美國工業與應用數學學會院士,是今年全球28位獲選院士中唯一的亞洲學者。吳教授將於今年七月份在美國賓夕法尼亞州匹茲堡舉行的美國工業與應用數學學會年會上獲授殊榮。

該榮譽是表彰吳教授對結構化線性系統和圖像處理算法的重要貢獻。吳教授曾擔任《美國工業與應用數學學會科學計算國際期刊》(SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing)副編輯、第14屆國際線性代數會議主題演講嘉賓、美國工業與應用數學學會東亞分會秘書,以及擔任該學會多場會議的聯會主席。

美國工業與應用數學學會自2009年開始頒發院士榮譽,至今只有15位亞洲學者當選。

美國工業與應用數學學會是一個國際學會,共有超過14,000名來自85個國家的個人、學術及企業會員。頒發院士殊榮是肯定學者在研究和服務上的傑出表現,以及他們在推動應用數學和計算機科學上的貢獻。
