Seventeen of Australia's leading scientists were honoured on 23 March by election to the Australian Academy of Science.
Those honoured included the following mathematical scientists:
Professor Joseph John Monaghan FAA
distinguished for his work in the development of smoothed particle hydrodynamics with broad applications in astrophysical, geophysical and engineering problems.
Professor Ian Richard Petersen FAA FIEAust FIEEE
distinguished for his work on robust control theory with innovative advances enabling the synthesis of robust state feedback controllers using standard software tools.
Professor Mathai Varghese FAA FAustMS
distinguished for his work in geometric analysis involving the topology of manifolds, including the Mathai-Quillen formalism in topological field theory.
Professor Aibing Yu FAA FTSE
distinguished for his work in particle science and technology, including methods to simulate and model the motion of individual particles within large populations in flowing systems.
