# The 2023 Applied Mathematics Prize

The Applied Mathematics Prize was established in April 2022 to honor researchers who have made outstanding
achievements in applied mathematics and to promote the exchange and development of the entire field.

The Prize for Excellent Young Applied Mathematicians, established in September 2013, has been
incorporated into the Applied Mathematics Prize and will continue to be awarded to those of age below 35
who have obtained outstanding results in the field of Applied Mathematics.

The 2023 prizes were awarded to the following researchers.
