My research interests are in linear/nonlinear equations, radiative transfer problems, multilevel methods for integral equations, optimal control, optimization of noisy functions, flow in porous media, and computational quantum chemistry and physics. I am a proud member of the NCSU Numerical Analysis Group.

I distribute MATLAB software for Linear Equations, Nonlinear Equations, and Optimization . Our group supports MATLAB codes for optimization of noisy functions.

I am developing a Julia package and a Jupyter Notebook for nonlinear equations.


Professional Data: recent publications and tech reports , presentations and talks , complete vita ,
undergraduate RAs , current and former Ph. D. students, my mathematical family tree .


It's checkout time! I entered phased retirement on July 1.


Zack Morrow has left the building. He defended his thesis on July 9 and will begin work at Sandia in August.

New book: Solving Nonlinear Equations with Iterative Methods: Solvers and Examples in Julia. Under contract with SIAM. Check out the Julia package and the Notebook .

Katie is now the Robert A. Plane Endowed Chair at Clarkson University

My term as SIAM board chair expired in Dec 2019. Praise to the term limit gods!

Yet another academic grandchild via Katie. Joshua Beauregard finished on April 3.

They made me a fellow of the AAAS .

Katie did it again! Jesse Clark-Stone was my latest academic grandchild until (see above)


Old new stuff



Why publish with SIAM?

The Mathematics Department at Purdue gave me the outstanding Alumnus Award for 2013.

I'm somebody now! Scroll to the bottom of Henk van der Vorst's math portrait page.

Why should you join SIAM ?

A REALLY OLD picture.
