Catherine Richards Prize
The two Catherine Richards Prizes may be awarded annually for the best article published in Mathematics Today in the preceding year. The second prize was created to recognise younger contributors. From 2013 the Early Career Mathematician Catherine Richards Prize Competition replaced the additional Catherine Richards Prize for writers under 35.
Catherine Richards worked for the Institute from 1970 until her death in 1993. She was Executive Secretary for the period 1987 to 1993. The prize fund was created from donations made in her memory.
The new Early Career Mathematician Catherine Richards Prize Competition is for Early Career Mathematicians. Please download and display the poster to promote this competition. The deadline is 31 July 2015 and the winner will receive £250.
The first ECM Catherine Richards Prize competition winners are Dr Andrew Irving and Dr Ebrahim Patel for their excellent article Pendulum Pattern Perception, which is published in the December 2014 Mathematics Today.
