Mayhew Prize

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Mayhew Prize is a prize awarded annually by the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Cambridge to the student showing the greatest distinction in applied mathematics, primarily for courses offered by DAMTP, but also for some courses offered by the Statistical Laboratory, in the CASM examinations, also known as Part III of the Mathematical Tripos.[1] This includes only about half of all students taking the CASM examinations, since the rest are taking mainly pure mathematics courses, and so the winner of the Mayhew Prize is not equivalent to obtaining the highest mark on the CASM examinations. There is currently no equivalent prize for pure mathematics, due to the absence of funds.
