Hardy Fellowship 2015

The London Mathematical Society is pleased to announce the LMS Hardy Fellow 2015 is Professor Nalini Joshi (University of Sydney).

The Hardy Fellowship was founded in 1967 in memory of G. H. Hardy to recognise outstanding contributions to both mathematics and to the Society. The Hardy Fellowship is a lecture tour of the UK by a mathematician with a high reputation in research. 

In 2015, the Society will be hosting a special Hardy Lecture as part of its 150th Anniversary celebrations. Professor Joshi will undertake a lecture tour of the UK in the summer, which will end with the Hardy Lecture at the Society Meeting on Friday 3 July in London.

Professor Nalini Joshi's research focuses on discovering new properties of solutions of integrable and near-integrable systems by bringing together geometry and asymptotic analysis, a unification of fields of mathematics that remain separate in the UK. Joshi is one of the most exciting recent developments in nonlinear systems theory: the study of discrete versions of partial and ordinary differential equations that arise widely as prototypical, integrable models in applications. Her results on the geometric analysis of discrete nonlinear equations form a major breakthrough and will constitute the main theme of her Hardy lectures.
