Congratulations to Tonghai Yang, the newest member of our department to be named a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) for 2019. He was named For contributions to the theory of Shimura varieties, L-functions, automorphic forms, and complex multiplication.
The Fellows of the AMS designation recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.
Professor Emeritus Marshall Slemrod has been researching how the equations map to various type of conditions. “Navier-Stokes makes very good predictions for the air in the room,” said Slemrod, who presented the evidence last month in the journal Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena. But at high altitudes, and in other near-vacuum situations, “the equations become less and less accurate." Read more at https://www.quantamagazine.org/famous-fluid-equations-are-incomplete-20150721/
