Lifelong career adds up to top honors for UH math professor

HOUSTON, July 12, 2004 Whether applying math to the medical or petroleum industries, UH Professor Roland Glowinski considers his career to be one of his greatest rewards. Most recently, this impressive career has earned him another kind of reward the 2004 Theodore von Krmn Prize.

Named for revered mathematician Theodore von Krmn, this international honor in the field of mathematics was established in 1968 and is only awarded every five years. Presented for notable applications of math made to mechanics or the engineering sciences in the five to 10 years preceding each award, the 2004 Theodore von Krmn Prize will be presented to Glowinski at the 2004 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, at the Oregon Convention Center in the Oregon Ballroom 203-204, Thursday, July 15.

While the award may be given either for a single notable achievement or for a collection of such achievements, Glowinski was recognized by the selection committee for his "sustained outstanding contributions to mechanics and applied and computational mathematics, especially in the area of complex problems in fluid mechanics, many in the spirit of those of Theodore von Krmn." As part of the $1,000 prize, Glowinski will give a 25-minute special lecture at 3 p.m., Wednesday, July 14, titled "On the Numerical Simulation of Incompressible Viscous Flow with Moving or Free Boundary: Applications."

Well known for his research on new mathematic models of particular flow and for the application of mathematical and computational methods to the design of a new class of heart valves, Glowinski came to the University of Houston in 1985 and currently holds a Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Professorship in Mathematics, as well as being a mechanical engineering professor at UH. He also has been a docent professor since 2001 of the mathematics of information technology at the internationally recognized research campus of the Univer
