60th Birthday Conference in Dresden 16-18 November 2011

60th birthday: Special Issue of Computational Methods in Applied Mathematics

Description: Description: AtDesRetirement1.jpg

For a long time I’ve been interested in the design and analysis of numerical methods for singularly perturbed differential equations. This includes convection-diffusion problems, linearized Navier-Stokes equations and the like.

More recently, I have also begun to work on differential equations that contain fractional-order derivatives. See my list of publications (item 95 onwards) for my first attempts in this area.

In January 2012 I chose to retire from University College Cork (National University of Ireland Cork) in order to concentrate on research.

I am a member of the editorial boards of the journals Advances in Computational MathematicsComputational Methods in Applied Mathematics and the Mathematical Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy.

I am associated with IRGSPDE --- the Irish Research Group on Singularly Perturbed Differential Equations.

Here is a list of my invited lectures.

To get a more precise idea of my interests, look at the list of publications and preprints since 1991.

Ireland is in the same time zone as Great Britain, so usually we are one hour behind most of western continental Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, etc.) and five hours ahead of the east coast of the USA.

To stay human, I dabble in some non-mathematical activities:

  • gardening, but I'm a better spectator than participant 
  • eating interesting food, especially Chinese! 
  • enjoying (immensely) foreign travel 
  • walking (my wife Jeanne and I walked 200Km of the Camino de Santiago in Sept 2012)
  • talking/chatting (like all Irish people)

History:

For the period 2003 – 2005 I was President of the UK/Republic of Ireland Section of SIAM. I was an Editor of the SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis for the period 1998-2003.

Hans-Görg Roos, Pieter Hemker and I have organised three Oberwolfach conferences on numerical methods for singularly perturbed differential equations; group photos of these meetings are at 1995, 1998, 2001. Hans-Görg and I organized a further mini-workshop in this area at Oberwolfach in 2003.

“Eine Tasse Tee, so bei Sonnenaufgang, wenn man fröstelnd im Westwind steht, während die Insel der Heili­­gen sich noch im Morgendunst vor der Sonne verbarg; auf dieser Insel also wohnt das einzige Volk Europas, das nie Eroberungszüge unternahm, wohl selbst einige Male erobert wurde, von Dänen, Normannen, Engländern --- nur Priester schickte es, Mönche, Missionare, die --- auf dem seltsamen Umweg über Irland --- den Geist thebaischer Askese nach Europa brachten; vor mehr als tausend Jahren lag hier, so weit außerhalb der Mitte, als ein Exzentrikum, tief in der Atlantik hineingerutscht, Europas glühendes Herz…”  Heinrich Böll, Irisches Tagebuch (1957)

 

English translation by L.Vennewitz (1983): "A cup of tea, at dawn, while standing shivering in the west wind, the isle of saints still hiding from the sun in the morning mist: here on this island, then, live the only people in Europe that never set out to conquer, although they were conquered several times, by Danes, Normans, Englishmen --- all they sent out was [sic] priests, monks, missionaries who, by way of this strange detour via Ireland, brought the spirit of Thebaic ascetisism to Europe; here, more than a thousand years ago, so far from the centre of things, as if it had slipped way out into the Atlantic, lay the glowing heart of Europe."
