Professor Jian-Guo Liu has been named a member of the 2017 Class of the Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS). The fellows of the AMS program recognizes members for their outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication and use of mathematics.
Liu, a professor of mathematics and physics, is the 14th AMS fellow from Duke. The society cited him for contributions to the analysis of numerical methods for fluid dynamics, kinetic theory and nonlinear partial differential equations.
"I am honored to be named as a fellow of AMS,” Liu said, “and it is so gratifying to receive this recognition for doing something I truly love and enjoy."
“Jian-Guo is a fantastic mathematician and colleague,” said Jonathan Mattingly, chair of mathematics at Duke.
“Both the breadth and depth of his contributions to applied mathematics and numerical analysis is exceptional. Duke mathematics and physics is very lucky to have him.”
