David Donoho wins Norbert Wiener Prize in Applied Mathematics

donohoDAVID DONOHO, professor of statistics, has won the Norbert Wiener Prize in Applied Mathematics, which is awarded every three years for “an outstanding contribution to applied mathematics in the highest and broadest sense.” Donoho won for “introducing novel fundamental and powerful mathematical tools in signal processing and image analysis.” The award citation lauded Donoho as “one of the most cited applied and computational mathematicians of our time” owing to his methods, which were described as “very deep mathematically and very efficient computationally” and thus extremely successful for both theoreticians and practitioners. Donoho is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences. The prize is jointly awarded by the American Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

  1. While Patrick is in a higher place now I don’t feel anymore pain, currently we are feeling the pain. I never knew him personally but only knew he through his movies. I feel very bad for Lisa his wife who knew him well and was his soul mate. God bless you lisa in the time of sadness. You must remember that life is for the living. In death, they rest peacefully watching from above. They do not want us to cry and suffer.
