The David Crighton Medal was established by the Councils of the IMA and LMS in 2002 in order to pay tribute to the memory of Professor David George Crighton FRS. The silver gilt medal will be awarded to an eminent mathematician for services both to mathematics and to the mathematical community, who is normally resident in the mathematical community represented by the two organisations on the 1st January of the year of the award.
In 2015 the Councils of the Institute and the Society agreed that the frequency of the award should be increased, and the award is now considered biennially by the Councils. The medal-winner will normally be presented with the award at a joint meeting of the IMA and the LMS, and will be invited to give a lecture.
The David Crighton Medal was awarded in 2017 to Professor I. David Abrahams. Previous winners of the Medal are Professor Frank Kelly CBE FRS (2015), Professor Arieh Iserles and Dr Peter Neumann OBE (2012), Professor Keith Moffat FRS (2009), Professor Sir Christopher Zeeman FRS (2006) and Professor Sir John Ball FRS (2003).
Nominations are now invited. These should be made on the David Crighton Medal Nomination Form 2019 (doc) which includes further details of the award and remittance instructions.
Please email any enquiries to Alison Penry, Executive Manager, Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, who can also provide hard copies of the nomination form, if required: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
