Zdeněk Strakoš, professor of numerical mathematics at Charles University in Prague, has been named a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). He was recognized for “advances in numerical linear algebra, especially iterative methods”.

Professor Strakoš is currently teaching course Matrix and Iterative Methods I that is a compulsory part of the mathematical modelling curriculum. Zdeněk Strakoš is also one of the leaders of the MORE (Implicitly constituted material models: from theory through model reduction to efficient numerical methods) project. We are very happy that we have a chance to work with Zdeněk, and we are very proud that he also participates in education in our study programme. Congratulations!
