Ivo and Renata Babuska Endowed Student Award for Graduate Research in Mathematics

Ivo M. Babuška was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1926. He and his wife, Renata, and their two young children immigrated to the United States in 1968. Dr. Babuška was a professor in the Department of Mathematics and the Institute for Physical Sciences and Technology (IPST) at the University of Maryland from 1968 to 1994 when he retired as a Distinguished University Professor Emeritus. 

At the University of Maryland, Professor Babuška established the foundations of his scientific contributions in the field of computational mathematics, including the proofs of the Babuška-Lax Milgram Theorem and the infimum and supremum (inf-sup) theorem, which became known as the Babuška-Brezzi condition. 

Gifts made to the Ivo and Renata Babuška Endowed Student Award for Graduate Research in Mathematics will support and encourage the next generation of engineers and scientists in computational mathematics at the University of Maryland.
