Djordjo Milovic wins KWG award
Djordjo Milovic has won the KWG award for PhD students during the 51st Dutch Mathematical Congress, which took place on 14 and 15 April 2015 in Leiden. Six PhD students were able to present their work during a minisymposium on April 15th.
The jury consisted of prof. dr. Hendrik Lenstra (chair, retired professor Leiden University), Prof. dr. Mark Peletier (Technical University Eindhoven) and Prof. dr. Harry van Zanten (University of Amsterdam). Important criteria were that the presentations had to be interesting for the general mathematical audience, but also to the none-mathematical spectators. Djordjo Milovic is PhD student at the Mathematical Institute of Leiden University, supervised by Prof. dr. Peter Stevenhaven (Leiden University) and Prof. Étienne Fouvry (Université Paris-Sud). With his presentation “On the 2-part of class groups of Z[√−2p] for p ≡ 3 mod 4” Djordjo convinced the jury and he went home with a trophy and a cash prize.
