QUB Maths Student Andrew Joyce wins Hamilton Day 2019 Prize
Congratulations to Andrew Joyce, 3rd yr MSci Maths student at QUB, who was one of the top nine undergraduate maths students in Ireland to win the 2019 Hamilton Prize!
On the 16 October each year, a day of celebrations is held to commemorate famed Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton's quaternion algebra 'Eureka moment' in 1843.
This year the Royal Irish Academy was honoured to invite Professor Maria Chudnovsky of Princeton University to help celebrate Hamilton Day.
Hamilton Day 2019 began with a masterclass for students in mathematics, given by Professor Chudnovsky. The masterclass, chaired by Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin, gave students the opportunity to learn from a leading expert in the field of graph theory.
Hamilton Day celebrations continued with the Hamilton Prize award ceremony honouring the top nine undergraduate mathematics students in Ireland, generously sponsored by Ibec. The ceremony took place at Academy House and was attended by family and friends of the recipients, as well as representatives from their university departments and members of the mathematics community in Ireland.
