The 2020 Cantrell Lectures will be given by Professor Weinan E of Princeton University.
Professor Weinan E is a distinguished applied mathematician noted for his work on a wide range
of topics. He has received numerous awards, most recently the 2019
Peter Henrici Prize from SIAM. The SIAM announcement of this price
cited "breakthrough contributions in various fields of applied mathematics and scientific computing,
particularly nonlinear stochastic (partial) differential equations (PDEs), computational fluid
dynamics, computational chemistry, and machine learning. E’s scientific work has led to the
resolution of many long-standing scientific problems. His signature achievements include
novel mathematical and computational results in stochastic differential equations;
design of efficient algorithms to compute multiscale and multiphysics problems,
particularly those arising in fluid dynamics and chemistry; and his recent
pioneering work on the application of deep learning techniques to scientific computing.
