ICBS Frontiers of Science Awards 2023

Dr Jonathan Hickman, in collaboration with Dr Larry Guth of MIT and former UoE PhD student Marina Iliopoulou, has been awarded a Frontier of Science Award (FSA) for his 2019 paper - Sharp estimates for oscillatory integral operators via polynomal partitioning - in the Fourier Analysis and Harmonic Analysis category.

In addition, Dr Ben Davison, in collaboration with Dr Sven Meinhardt (UoBonn), has been awarded the same FSA for his 2020 paper - Cohomological Donaldson-Thomas theory of a quiver with potential and quantum enveloping algebras - in the Homological Algebra, K-Theory, and Noncommutative Algebra category.

Dr Jan Sbierski was also awarded a FSA for his 2018 paper - The C^0-inextendibility of the Schwarzschild spacetime and the space-like diameter in Lorentzian geometry - in the General Relativity category.

The International Congress for Basic Science (ICBS) honours research outputs with outstanding scholarly value and selects papers from 34 areas of the 3 basic science field respresented at the ICBS (mathematics, theoretical physics, and theoretical computer and information sciences).
