Introducing the award

The JMAA Ames Awards are two annual awards in pure and applied mathematics, linked to Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications (JMAA).

Each award is $2,500. In each case, this sum is divided equally among the coauthors of a paper, published during the past three years, that is deemed to be of major interest and of high quality. The decision on these two awards is made by the Editorial Board of the JMAA.

Background

After passing away in 2008, the family of Dr. Ames donated a substantial sum to honour Dr. Ames' contributions to mathematics and the Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications (JMAA). Elsevier, Publisher of the JMAA, donated a matching sum and the combined account, The JMAA Ames Award Fund, is now entrusted with and managed by the American Mathematical Society. As recognition of Dr. Ames' many years of outstanding service to the Journal, two annual awards were established, in pure and applied mathematics.
