The Bolyai Institute of the University of Szeged is pleased to announce hereby that the Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy Medal for the year 2012 has been awarded to

László Kérchy, Professor of the University of Szeged, Hungary.

Over three decades, László Kérchy has contributed twenty one definitive research papers to Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, enriching the Sz.-Nagy--Foias theory of Hilbert space contractions with beautiful, fundamental theorems. In particular, he has achieved significant progress in the study of asymptotically non-vanishing contractions.

The Medal was presented to László Kérchy at 14:00, December 12, 2012 in the Bolyai Institute. On this occasion he delivered a lecture ``On the Sz.-Nagy--Foias functional calculus".
