International prize “Tullio Levi-Civita” for the Mathematical and Mechanical Sciences

 

2020 Prize Winners

We are pleased to announce that the 2020 Levi-Civita Prize for the Mathematical and Mechanical Sciences will be presented to Prof. Felix Otto for his outstanding research and achievements in the applied analysis of partial differential equations and in the calculus of variations, which have been an exciting and challenging stimulus to a whole generation of scientists. The Levi-Civita Prize carries a silver medal and a diploma and it is accompanied by The Levi-Civita Lecture honoring the memory of the famous Italian mathematical physicist with a distinguished contribution of the recipient of the Prize.
Felix Otto from 1999 to 2010 was professor for applied mathematics at the University of Bonn, and currently serves as one of the directors of the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig

Due to the current developments related to the ongoing COVID19 crisis, we have decided to postpone the award ceremony to 2021.


2019 Prize Winners

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 Levi-Civita Prize for the Mathematical and Mechanical Sciences will be presented to Prof. George Ellis for his outstanding research and achievements in Relativistic Cosmology and General Relativity which have been an exciting and challenging stimulus to a whole generation of scientists. The Levi-Civita Prize carries a silver medal and a diploma and it is accompanied by The Levi-Civita Lecture honoring the memory of the famous Italian mathematical physicist with a distinguished contribution of the recipient of the Prize.
G.F.R Ellis, Fellow of the Royal Society, is Professor Emeritus of the Mathematics Department, University of Cape Town in South Africa and McVittie Visiting Professor of Astronomy at Queen Mary College (London University).

Rule

Art.1 Prize establishment

The International Prize “Tullio Levi-Civita” will recognize the high quality and the undisputed originality of the Scientific Research of eminent, Italian or foreign scientists.
Indispensable prerequisite for the appointment of the prize will be the determination of the International value of the research done by the winner. The Selection Committee will explain the choice with a written report which will be issued on the M&MoCS website.

Art. 2 Selection committee

The Prize will be awarded by a Selection Committee composed by scientists appointed by the President of the Foundation MEMOCS and the Executive Council of M&MoCS Centre. The Director of the M&MoCS Centre will be part of the commission and will write the Minutes.The Committee will be chaired by a senior member in the role of first rank professor or equivalent. The prize will be awarded only by unanimous vote of the Selection Committee.

Art.3 Art.3 Recognition to the winners

The prize will be awarded to not more than two scientists per year. The Selection Committee will chose the scientific meeting where the prize will be presented.

Art.4 Award criteria

The Selection Committee will determine the winner’s profound and extensive expertise in Theoretical or Applied Mechanics or in Mathematics. The International prize “Tullio Levi-Civita” will be awarded to scientists who have distinguished themselves for their innovative high-value results which will have to be considered as important by the International Scientific Community and have appeared both in scientific journals and in volumes with international distribution. The winner should have contributed to the formation of at least one young researcher.

Art.5 Ceremony

The prizes will be awarded with a public ceremony during the selected scientific meeting. The Director of MEMOCS and/or a member of the selection committee will present the prize to the winners.
