Dr Barry Wardell to receive thesis prize from IOP’s Gravitational Physics Group co-sponsored by CQG

It gives me great pleasure to announce the award of the 2010 IOP Gravitational Physics Group’s Thesis Prize to Dr Barry Wardell of the Albert Einstein Institute at Golm. As Editor-in-Chief of Classical and Quantum Gravity, which co-sponsors the prize, I am delighted to see it going to such a deserving recipient.

The award is made for the development of ground-breaking computational techniques for obtaining highly accurate expressions for Green functions on curved spacetime.

Dr Wardell completed his thesis at University College Dublin in Ireland. The thesis: “Green functions and radiation reaction from a spacetime perspective” is available for download from the ArXiv:

The prize will be awarded at IOP’s Nuclear and Particle Physics Divisional (NPPD) conference at Glasgow University on 6 April. Dr Wardell will receive the prize shortly before his talk at 3.30pm in the Humanities Lecture Theatre.

Yours sincerely
