J. H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software
The J. H. Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software is awarded every four years to honor outstanding contributions in the field of numerical software. The award is named to commemorate the outstanding contributions of James H. Wilkinson in the same field. 
The award, consisting of $US3000 and a trophy, is jointly presented every four years by the Argonne National Laboratory, the National Physical Laboratory and the Numerical Algorithms Group.
Eligibility and selection criteria
The winner must be at most 40 years of age as of January 1 of the year of the award. The award is given on the basis of:
- Clarity of the software implementation and documentation.
- Clarity of the paper accompanying the entry.
- Portability, reliability, efficiency and usability of the software implementation.
- Depth of analysis of the algorithm and the software.
- Importance of application addressed by the software.
- Quality of the test software
The 2007 prize was awarded to Wolfgang Bangerth, Guido Kanschat, and Ralf Hartmann for deal.II, a software library for computational solution of partial differential equations using adaptive finite elements. It is freely available.
Andreas Waechter (IBM T. J. Watson Research Center) and Carl Laird (Texas A&M University) were awarded the 2011 prize for IPOPT, an object-oriented library for solving large-scale continuous optimization problems. It is freely available.
The 2015 prize was awarded to Patrick Farrell (University of Oxford), Simon Funke (Simula Research Laboratory), David Ham (Imperial College London), and Marie Rognes (Simula Research Laboratory) for the development of dolfin-adjoint, a package which automatically derives and solves adjoint and tangent linear equations from high-level mathematical specifications of finite element discretisations of partial differential equations.
