August Palanques Award

The August Palanques Award is given to the student who completes the bachelor degree in Mathematics with the best academic record.

Professor August Palanques i Mestre (1957-1997) received a master’s degree and a doctorate in Physics from the University of Barcelona and also a master’s degree in Mathematics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. He began his teaching work in the former Departament d’Equacions Funcionals, later merged into the Departament de Matemàtica Aplicada i Anàlisi, where he was secretary; he also assumed the secretariat of the Faculty.

His research focused on the application of several fields of functional analysis to some theories of physics.

At his premature death, his family established a fund to award the student of the studies in Mathematics with best record at the end of the first cycle (two courses). The Faculty has continued to award the prize, which, with the evolution of the structure of the studies, has finished with the current format and is granted automatically to the student with the best Mathematics academic record without needing to formally apply to the prize.

Since the academic year 2017-2018, the prize consists of a diploma and 1,000 € (except for legal deductions), which are received at the awards ceremony that is held every fall in the Paranifm of the UB.
