Every four years, the European Mathematical Society (EMS) awards ten EMS Prizes, the Felix Klein Prize and the Otto Neugebauer Prize. The Felix Klein Prize 2020 is awarded to Prof. Dr. Arnulf Jentzen. Congratulations!

The core research topics of Arnulf Jentzen’s research group at the Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science are machine learning approximation algorithms, computational stochastics, numerical analysis for high-dimensional partial differential equations, stochastic analysis, and computational finance. He is particularly interested in deep learning based algorithms for high-dimensional approximation problems and different kinds of differential equations.

The Felix Klein Prize is awarded to a scientist, or a group of at most three scientists, under the age of 38 for using sophisticated methods to give an outstanding solution, which meets with the complete satisfaction of industry, to a concrete and difficult industrial problem. The Felix Klein Prize fund is offered by the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics in Kaiserslautern.

All prize winners are usually announced at the Opening Ceremony of the European Congress of Mathematics (ECM). Due to the current pandemic situation, the congress is rescheduled to 2021 and all prize lectures will take place in 2021, from 20 – 26 June in Portorož, Slovenia.
