On Friday, October 1 at 2:00 AMCS will host a colloquium featuring Mark Peletier, Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology.
Bio: Mark Peletier obtained an MSc in mathematics from Leiden University (cum laude), and a Diplôme d’Études Approfondies at the Laboratoire d’Analyse Numérique (now Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions) of Université Paris VI, both in 1992. He received his PhD at Leiden University (1997), and continued to work at the University of Bath (1997-1998) and the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science in Amsterdam (1998-2004) before becoming a full professor in mathematics at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven. His research interest focuses on differential equations and their applications to real-world systems. His work spans the spectrum from applied to fundamental, with mathematical contributions to biology, geology, chemistry, pattern formation, solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, and contributions to the theory of variational calculus and differential equations. Peletier received a VIDI grant in 2003, a VICI grant in 2011, and was a member of De Jonge Akademie from 2006 to 2011. He was visiting professor in London (2000), Bath (2007, 2010-11) and Vancouver (2008), and he serves on the editorial board of three international journals.
