Randall J. LeVeque




Professor LeVeque completed his undergraduate work at the University of California at San Diego in 1977. He obtained his doctorate from Stanford University in 1982. He has held appointments at the Courant Institute, UCLA, and ETH-Zürich, and has been on the faculty at the University of Washington since 1985. Professor LeVeque enjoys teaching, and concentrates on classes in the fields of numerical analysis, partial differential equations, and nonlinear phenomena. He has written textbooks and lecture notes that are used at many universities. His research interests span many areas, including numerical analysis, computational fluid dynamics, nonlinear partial differential equations, mathematical theory of conservation laws, and software development, including the CLAWPACK software for solving conservation laws and other hyperbolic systems modeling wave propagation. He is also involved in research in many applications areas, including astrophysics, geophysics, and biophysics. Professor LeVeque is actively involved in SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and currently serves on the SIAM Council and as editor of the Survey and Review Section of SIAM Review.
