Second R. E. Moore Prize Awarded at SCAN‘2004 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. Moore Prize is awarded to Professor Thales for his solution of the Kepler conjecture about the densest arrangement of spheres in space. Dr. Hales solved this long-standing problem by using interval arithmetic. His preliminary results appeared in the Notices of the American Math Society in 2000; his full paper “The Kepler Conjecture” will appear in Annals of Mathematics, one of the world leading journals in pure mathematics. The paper and the detailed proof can be obtained from the author’s webpage∼thales. Theidea of arithmetic over sets to encompass finiteness, roundoff error, and uncertainty dates back to the first part of the twentieth century or earlier. By the late 1950’s, with exponentially increasing use of digital electronic computers for math- ematical computations, interval arithmetic was a concept whose time had come.
