The Rollo Davidson Trust
The Trust was founded in 1975 in memory of Rollo Davidson, an accomplished mathematician of remarkable potential, and Fellow-elect of Churchill College, Cambridge, who died on the Piz Bernina in 1970. Initial funding from the Trust came from the royalties of two collections of papers published in 1973/74 by friends and colleagues of Rollo. The Trust awards an annual Prize for young probabilists and has benefited from the continuing association with the Davidson family.
The Rollo Davidson Trustees have pleasure in announcing the award of the Rollo Davidson Prize for 2017 jointly to
Jian Ding (University of Chicago) for his achivements on mixing and cover times and on the random k-SAT conjecture
Nike Sun (University of California at Berkeley) for her achievements in probability theory and specifically on the random k-SAT conjecture.
The Rollo Davidson Trustees annouce the establishment of the Thomas Bond Sprague Prize. The prize has been made possible through the enthusiasm of and generous donation by Mr David O. Forfar, MA, FFA, to whom the Trustees express their gratitude and appreciation.
