    Two CAS members from the CAS Academy of Mathematics and System Sciences have received the 2003 Hua Loo-Keng Mathematics Prize. This was announced by Prof. Ma Zhiming, president of the Chinese Mathematics Society (CMS), at the Ninth CMS Congress inaugurated on October 31 at Wuhan University in central China's Hubei Province.

    Prof. Shi Zhongci is awarded the prize for his outstanding contributions to the finite element method and its applications, particularly for his systematic and thorough research into confirming and nonfirming elements, which has scored achievements with both great theoretical significance and guiding importance in practical computational engineering.

    Prof. Lu Ruqian is honored with the prize for his important contribution to mathematics and computer science, particularly for his systematic and pioneering work in the field of the information engineering and software engineering based on knowledge. Lu has greatly contributed to the development of mathematics and theoretical computer science in this country by introducing the mathematical concept of Riemann Surface into the studies of Petri theorem and establishing a multilayer Petri net model.

    The Hua Loo-Keng Mathematics Prize, awarded every two years, is the highest honor China confers on its leading mathematicians. It was established in 1992 in commemoration of Hua Loo-Keng, a world-renowned Chinese mathematician. Applicants between 50 and 70 years old are eligible for the prize, which picks up two persons each time. On the previous five occasions, the honor was given to the following mathematicians: Chen Jingrun, Lu Qikeng, Gu Chaohao, Wan Zhexian, Yang Le, Zhou Yuling, Wang Yuan, Ding Xiaqi, Jiang Boju and Gong Sheng.
