Computational Methods in Applied Mathematics
Until December 2001 I was leader of CWI's research programme
Modeling, Analysis and Simulation: Computational Fluid Dynamics .
Since January 2002 this programme is headed by
under the new name
Modeling, Analysis and Simulation: Computing and Control .
January 2002 I was elected CWI fellow,
which implies freedom from administrative duties
and full freedom in research.
At the moment the main topics I'm working on are:
Numerical singular perturbation problems
(with G.I.Shishkin, IMM Ekaterinburg, Russia),
Space mapping and defect correction for inverse problems in electromagnetics
(together with a PhD student: D. Echeverria at CWI),
and Multigrid methods for hp-adaptive discontinuous Galerkin methods.
December 2006 I formally retired. This leaves me with the status of emeritus, with only few obligations
and a complete freedom to do research and other interesting things.
Since 2007 I'm running my own institute:
Upcoming and recent events
Since I retired in 2006, no more formal courses will be given by me
"I have long argued that mathematicians ought to make a greater effort
to communicate their ideas and research effectively not only to the general public
but also to their own mathematical colleagues and to scientists and engineers.
I have attended far too many mathematics lectures where even mathematicians
quickly lose the talk's thread and begin to nod off, and
I have glanced at too many research papers that fail to explain why
a given topic is worth pursuing or to put the material in a broader context."
