On the proposal of János Csák, Minister of Culture and Innovation, President of Hungary Katalin Novák appointed our colleague Dr. András Szekrényes as a university professor as of September 1, 2023. Congratulations!
The ASME Design Engineering Division has awarded the Lyapunov Award
every two years to mechanical engineers who have contributed to the field of
nonlinear dynamics with outstanding research results. This year, the prize
was awarded to Professor Gábor Stépán, who received the award at the ASME
IDETC/CIE 2023 Congress in Boston. The title of his plenary lecture was
From the Delayed Mathieu Equation to the Stability of High-Speed Milling
The list of previous awardees can be seen here.
Professor Gábor Stépán received the 2023 Bolyai Prize, the most prestigious
scientific award in Hungary. The prize is awarded biannually to one person:
"who achieved internationally outstanding results in the field of scientific
research, development, youth education, and the utilization of the results
in socio-economic life." The award was given by the President of the
Hungarian Republic, Katalin Novák.
