Itô Prize

2015 Itô Prize winners

We are pleased to announce the 2015 Itô Prize winners, Francis Comets and Michael Cranston, for the paper entitled "Overlaps and pathwise localization in the Anderson polymer model" published in the journal Stochastic Processes and Applications.

The Itô Prize honors the memory and celebrates the legacy of Professor Kiyosi Itô and his vast and seminal contributions to probability theory. It is awarded every two years and recognizes significant contributions to the advancement of the theory or applications of stochastic processes over the corresponding period.

The 2015 winning article was chosen by a selection committee consisting of senior members of the probability community and representing wide geographical and specialization diversity. The award will be presented at the 2015 SPA Conference, Oxford, UK, to be held on July 13 to 17, 2015, and will consist of a certificate and a monetary award of US$5000.

The authors will give a plenary talk at the 2015 SPA Conference.

The paper is freely available to access until the end of 2015. Access the paper via ScienceDirect.
