Rollo Davidson Prize

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Rollo Davidson Prize is a prize awarded annually to early-career probabilists by the Rollo Davidson trustees. It is named after English mathematician Rollo Davidson (1944–1970).

Rollo Davidson Trust[edit]

In 1970, Rollo Davidson, a Fellow-elect of Churchill College, Cambridge died on Piz Bernina, a mountain in Switzerland. In 1975, a trust fund was established at Churchill College in his memory, endowed initially through the publication in his honour of two volumes of papers, edited by E. F. Harding and D. G. Kendall.[1]

The Rollo Davidson Trust[2] has awarded an annual prize to young probabilists since 1976,[3] and has organized occasional lectures in honour of Davidson.[4] Since 2012 the Trust has also awarded an annual Thomas Bond Sprague Prize.[5]
