Jordi Lluís Figueras receives prize for best article


This year's Barcelona Dynamical Systems Prize goes to the Uppsala mathematician Jordi Lluís Figueras. He's been awarded the prize together with Àlex Haro och Alejandro Luque.

"In this paper, the authors introduce new KAM strategies for constructing invariant tori. The new material consists of improvements in theoretical and computational methods that produce stronger results in concrete examples, like the standard map, the standard non-twist map and the Froeschlé map. Remarkably, the threshold value obtained in the standard map appears to be almost optimal."
