Students' numerical prize program expanded

The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), providers of computational software and computing services, will mark its 40th anniversary in 2010 by expanding its student prize program.

NAG will be inviting departments from institutions across the world to become involved with the student prizes. Awards will be offered for the best performances in a Masters of Science program, best projects and/or best numerical solutions.

Other NAG funded prizes include The Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software; the NAG Prize in Applied Numerical Computing and the NAG Prize in Mathematical Finance.

Originally an outgrowth of several UK universities, the Numerical Algorithms Group is an Oxford, UK headquartered not-for-profit numerical software development organization that collaborates with researchers and practitioners in academia and industry.
