This issue of Mathematical Programming, Series B, is in honour of Jon Borwein’s 60th birthday. Jon is one of the most productive Canadian mathematicians ever. His research spans an amazingly wide range from pure and applied and computational mathematics to high performance computing. His research continues to have enormous impact: ISI web of science lists more than 4,300 citations for 286 papers; while MathSciNet lists more than 3,100 citations by more than 1,600 authors. Jon is one of the 250 most cited mathematicians of the period 1980–2010.
Besides his active research record, Jon has had eight PhD students: Heinz Bauschke, Warren Hare, Wanzhen Huang, Mason Macklem, Halina Strojwas, Xianfu Wang, Doug Ward, Deming Zhuang. And many postdocs. Jon’s service record is equally impressive, e.g., he has served the Canadian Mathematics Community through his presidency (2000–2002), and he has edited the CMS book series for 15 years. More details follow below.
Jon is currently at the U ...
