It is a great honour and pleasure for us to announce that the 2010 IOP Gravitational Physics Group’s Thesis Prize, which is co-sponsored by Classical and Quantum Gravity, was awarded to Dr Barry Wardell, a member of the AEI Numerical Relativity group.
The prize was awarded in light of ground-breaking computational techniques, developed by Dr Barry Wardell during his PhD at University College Dublin, for obtaining highly accurate expressions for Green functions on curved spacetime. The full thesis is titled “Green functions and radiation reaction from a spacetime perspective” and is available at http://arxiv.org/abs/0910.2634.
The prize will be awarded at IOP’s Nuclear and Particle Physics Divisional (NPPD) conference at Glasgow University on 6 April. Dr Wardell will receive the prize shortly before his talk.
