An Expository Talk on Theory of Bifurcations with Numerical ExamplesBarry Bernstein
Department of Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Friday, May 3, 2002 15:00-16:00,
Speaker Bio: Dr. Bernstein was educated at the City College of New York (B.S. mathematics, 1951), and Indiana University (M.A., mathematics and mechanics, 1954; Ph.D., mathematics and mechanics, 1956). He began his research career at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (1951-52; '56-'61) and the U.S. National Bureau of Standards (1961-65), and combined research with teaching at Purdue University (1965-66), Illinois Institute of Technology (1966-present), Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia (1988), and Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg, France (1988-89). With more than seventy papers in journals and conference proceedings, he is known internationally for his pioneering work in nonlinear mathematics, fluid and solid mechanics, polymer science, and non-equilibrium thermodynamics. One of his papers (J. Research NBS, 68B, 103-113 (1964)) was cited in the Centennial Volume in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (formerly known as NBS).
