Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, President of Kazakhstan, signed a decree on awarding the State Prize in the field of science and technology named after al-Farabi to Prof Sadybekov and Dr Suragan for the series of works on “On the theory of nonlocal differential operators”.
This is the biggest scientific award in Kazakhstan, so congratulations!
We know both of them well, for example, from the cooperation on the just published (open access) book:
Ruzhansky M., Sadybekov M., Suragan D., Spectral geometry of partial differential operators, Monographs and Research Notes in Mathematics, Chapman and Hall/CRC Press, 2020. 378pp. link, free download (open access book), poster
Many of us remember Durvudkhan’s visit to our Analysis & PDE group at UGent.
