Arieh Iserles (born 2 September 1947) is a computational mathematician, currently Professor of the Numerical Analysis of Differential Equations at the University of Cambridge and a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.

He studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and wrote his PhD dissertation on numerical methods for stiff ordinary differential equations. His research comprises many themes in computational and applied mathematics: ordinary and partial differential equations, approximation theory, geometric numerical integration, orthogonal polynomials, functional equations, computational dynamics and the computation of highly oscillatory phenomena.

He has written a textbook, A First Course in the Numerical Analysis of Differential Equations (Cambridge University Press, 2nd ed. 2009).[1]

Arieh Iserles is the Managing Editor of Acta Numerica, Editor-in-Chief of IMA Journal of Numerical Analysis[2] and an editor of several other mathematical journals. From 1997 to 2000 he was the chair of the Society for the Foundations of Computational Mathematics.[3]

From 2010 to 2015 he was a Director of the Cambridge Centre for Analysis (CCA), an EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training in mathematical analysis.

In 1999, he was awarded the Onsager Medal, by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, in 2012 he received the David Crighton medal,[4] presented by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and London Mathematical Society "for services to mathematics and the mathematics community"[5] and in 2014 he was awarded by Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics the SIAM Prize for Distinguished Service to the Profession.[6] In 2012, Professor Iserles was an invited speaker at the 6th European Congress of Mathematics[7] in Kraków, 2–7 July 2012.
