Major international recognition of John Butcher

18 November 2015



Emeritus Professor John Butcher has been afforded a singular honour.  The 14th International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics, a major international annual conference which will be held in Rhodes in September 2016, will, as its principal focus, honour the many significant contributions by John during his career to both of these fields. Three of the invited speakers are winners of the Dahlquist Prize administered by SIAM, for outstanding work by someone aged 45 or less.

John has also recently agreed to publish a 3rd edition of his highly successful "Numerical methods for ordinary differential equations"  and has also just signed a contract with Springer for a new book "B-series: Algebraic analysis of numerical methods".

Congratulations to John on these recognitions and achievements.
