In 2019, Prof. Shi Jin received the Inaugural Best Article Award from the Springer journal Research in the Mathematical Sciences established for its 5th Anniversary. Published in August 2017, the paper was jointly written with Professor Jian-Guo Liu from Duke University and Dr. Zheng Ma, a former Ph.D. student of Shi Jin and currently a Golomb Visiting Assistant Professor at Purdue University. The title of the paper is “Uniform spectral convergence of the stochastic Galerkin method for the linear transport equations with random inputs in diffusive regime and a micro–macro decomposition-based asymptotic-preserving method.”
Research in the Mathematical Sciences is an international, peer-reviewed hybrid journal covering the full scope of Theoretical Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Theoretical Computer Science. The Mission of the Journal is to publish high-quality original articles that make a significant contribution to the research areas of both theoretical and applied mathematics and theoretical computer science. Research in the Mathematical Sciences wishes to lead the way by promoting the highest quality research of this type.
