The Peter Lax Award was instituted in honor of Lax’s seminal contributions, which laid the foundations of modern theory and computation in the area of hyperbolic conservation laws.
This distinction is awarded to a young researcher (10 years within the PhD) in the international conference on hyperbolic problems. The HYP 2020 conference will be held this June in Spain,, where Jacob Bedrossian will be delivering a distinguished plenary lecture.
