Travel Award 2018
As Editor-in-Chief of Mathematics, I am pleased to announce the winners of the Mathematics Travel Awards for 2018:
Travel Awards were granted to Timo Welti, a PhD student in Dr. Arnulf Jentzen’s group in the Department of Mathematics at ETH Zürich, and to Dr. Patrick Kürschner, a post-doctoral researcher in Dr. Peter Benner’s group at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, Germany.
Timo Welti has been working in the field of stochastic analysis. His recent research mainly focuses on new methods for solving high-dimensional optimal stopping problems. He will give a talk about “Deep optimal stopping: Solving high-dimensional optimal stopping problems with deep learning” at the SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification.
Dr. Patrick Kürschner has been working in the research area of numerical linear algebra. His research mainly focuses on numerical solution strategies for large-scale eigenvalue problems, matrix equations, matrix functions, preconditioning, and applications thereof. He will give a talk about “A comparison of rational Krylov and related methods for large Riccati equations” at the SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra 2018.

We are pleased to inform you that Mathematics (ISSN 2227-7390) has been accepted for inclusion in Clarivate Analytics’ Science Citation Indexed Expanded (SCIE) (Web of Science). Articles published from Volume 4 (2016) will be included in SCIE, as well as ‘Current Contents - Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences’. The first Impact Factor (IF) is expected to be published in the ‘2019 Journal Citation Reports (JCR)’ by Clarivate Analytics in June 2019.
To celebrate the progress of our journal, and to acknowledge authors’ continued support, we are pleased to announce the commencement of a Best Paper Award for research and review articles published between 1 January and 31 December 2017. After a thorough evaluation by the journal award committee, three review papers and six research papers will receive an award.
The articles will be selected by the journal award committee according to the following criteria:
- Originality and significance;
- Citation and download rates in 2018;
- Data Source: Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics).
Winners (corresponding author) will receive a certificate and an offer to publish a paper free of charge in Mathematics, after the normal peer-review procedure. Each winner will additionally receive a bonus based on the award class:
- First Award (one for a review paper and one for a research paper): 300 CHF each
- Second Award (one for a review paper and two for research papers): 200 CHF each
- Third Award (one for a review paper and three for research papers): 100 CHF each
The winners will be announced early in March 2019. For further details, please click here: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/mathematics/awards/
