## The 2016 MSJ Prize for Exellent Applied Mathematicians

The MSJ Prize for Excellent Young Applied Mathematicians was founded in 2013. The Prize is awarded to those of age below 40 who have obtained outstanding results in the field of Applied Mathematics.

The 2016 prizes were awarded to the following researchers.

- Tomoya Kemmochi (Ph.D. student at Graduate School of Mathematical Sciences, The University of Tokyo)
- $L^\infty$-error estimates for the finite element approximation of parabolic problems on domains with smooth boundaries

- Akito Suzuki (Associate Professor at Academic Assembly, School of Science and Technology, Institute of Engineering, Shinshu University)
- A spectral and scattering theoretic proof of the weak limit theorem for quantum walks

- Shuya Chiba (Senior Assistant Professor at Faculty of Advanced Science and Technology, Kumamoto University)
- 2-factors containing perfect matchings in bipartite graphs and directed 2-factors in digraphs

- Junya Nishiguchi (Ph.D. student at Department of Mathematics, Kyoto University / JSPS Research Fellow (DC2))
- How should we understand the time-delay structure in dynamics?

- Yuto Miyatake (Assistant Professor at Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya University)
- Finite difference schemes preserving multiple invariants for evolutionary partial differential equations
