Conference honoring UH professor attracts researchers from United States, abroad

HOUSTON, March 7, 2007 Eminent computational scientists from Europe and the United States will gather in Houston this week for a two-day conference and banquet honoring a world-renowned University of Houston mathematician on his 70th birthday.

UH is hosting the USA Conference on Applied and Numerical PDEs (partial differential equations) March 9-10 to acknowledge the career achievements of Roland Glowinski, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Professor of Mathematics. Glowinski, who also is a mechanical engineering professor, is an expert on numerical analysis and variational methods.

The Department of Mathematics, the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NSM), the College of Technology and the Texas Learning and Computation Center (TLC2) are sponsoring the event.

Much of Glowinski's work involves computer simulations to describe scientific, medical and engineering problems mathematically. He is 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.

Organizers expect up to 100 attendees at the conference, to be opened by Donald Birx, UH vice president for research. Hours are 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Friday, March 9 and 9 a.m.-noon, Saturday, March 10 in Room 232 of Philip G. Hoffman Hall on the UH campus. Speakers include 16 scientists from France, Switzerland, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Stanford University, the California Institute of Technology, The University of Texas at Austin, UT-Dallas, Rice University and UH. The schedule is accessible online at http://www.math.uh.edu/~pan/Seminar/seminar/program-online.pdf.

An estimated 80 guests also will gather at the Petroleum Club of Houston Friday evening to celebrate Glowinski's 70th birthday. William Fitzgibbon, dean of the UH College of Technology, will pr
