The annual Iranian Functional Analysis Award was established by Prof. M. S. Moslehian in 2011 in cooperation with the Tusi Math. Research Group and Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. Starting in 2015, Duke University Press will co-sponsor it. 

Each year, the award is given to at most two fresh researchers having outstanding papers in the fields of Matrix Analysis, Functional Analysis, Operator Theory and Harmonic Analysis. The candidates should be either current PhD students or persons who finished their PhD program within four years.
 
The evaluation is based on 
(i) the quality of journals in which the candidates publish their papers (using the MCQ's in MathSciNet),
(ii) a comparative ranking of 5 papers (one main and 4 other selected papers) of each of candidates.

For more information, or to apply, visit the Award's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/IranianFunctionalAnalysisAward.

March 7 is the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, when police brutally attacked peaceful Civil Rights marchers as they tried to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. Read an excerpt on our blog from historian Gary May's book Bending Toward Justice, in which he details how Americans learned about the march and their reaction to the TV coverage.
