Scientia Professor, School of Mathematics, University of New Ssouth Wales, Sydney, Australia.

Research interests

Professor Ian Sloan\\\'s current research interests are in boundary integral methods, finite element methods, high dimensional numerical integration and related issues of information-based complexity, multivariate approximation theory, and the time discretisation of evolution problems.

Nowadays, his research interests lie with the mathematics of solving problems in science and engineering, using computers.

Prizes and awards

President of the International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics.

He was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 1993. In 1997 he was awarded the ANZIAM Medal by Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM), and in 2001 was awarded the Thomas Ranken Lyle Medal of the Australian Academy of Science.
In 2003 he was the joint winner of the inaugural George Szekeres Medal of the Australian Mathematical Society, and in 2005 was awarded the Information Based Complexity Prize. He is a member of the editorial board of a number of international journals.
