The A. J. Guttmann Prize

The A. J. Guttmann Prize, currently valued at $500 AUD, is awarded for the best talk by a student at ANZAMP’s Annual Meeting.  The rules governing this prize, along with the precise eligibility criteria, are detailed in the Guidelines.

This prize is named in honour of Prof. Tony Guttmann who has been, and continues to be, a leading figure in the mathematical physics community in Australia.  Among many distinctions, Tony Guttmann has a distinguished research record in combinatorics and statistical mechanics, was President of the Australian Mathematical Society and was one of the leading figures in the establishment of the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute. Tony is renowned for the guidance and wisdom he offers to his colleagues and students, and he is a tireless advocate of programs for talented students in mathematical physics and mathematics more generally.

Past winners of the A. J. Guttmann Prize are listed below, along with links to their talk slides.
