Enrique Pujals wins TWAS 2009 prize

Hello! Yesterday I visited IMPA‘s webpage and I discovered that my friend Enrique Pujals won the TWAS 2009 prize in Mathematics. Congratulations to him!

Below you find brief descriptions of TWAS objectives and Enrique’s works (both taken from TWAS webpage):

TWAS is an autonomous international organization, based in Trieste, Italy, that promotes scientific excellence for sustainable development in the South.

Enrique Pujals, a native Argentinean who serves as professor at the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IMPA) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has been named the winner of the 2009 TWAS Prize in mathematics for his contribution to develop a theory about robust dynamics and about the role of homoclinic bifurcation as a universal mechanism to describe the way to produce very rich and complex dynamics.
