Congratulations to Maarten Derickx

Maarten Derickx was awarded the Schoonschip Prize from the Computer Algebra of the Netherlands (CAN) Foundation for best Ph.D. thesis of Dutch universities involving Computer Algebra. Dr. Derickx’s thesis title is Torsion points on elliptic curves on number fields of small degree (Leiden, 2016).

The Schoonschip Prize is named after the first Dutch computer algebra system called Schoonschip. This system was developed in the 1960s by Nobel laureate Martinus J.G. Veltman to assist with renormalizations of gauge theories, and later inspired systems like Mathematica.
