Abstract

Second R. E. Moore Prize Awarded at SCAN’2004 Thomas C. Hales from the University of Pittsburgh received the 2nd biannual R. E. Moore Prize for Applications of Interval Analysis, during the 11th GAMM- IMACS International Symposium on Scientific Computing, Computer Arithmetic, and Validated Numerics SCAN’2004 (Fukuoka, Japan, October 4–8, 2004). TheR.E.Moore Prize was established in 2002 by the Editorial Board of Reliable Computing.The 2004 R. E.
