Feng Kang Distinguished Lecture 2010

Achi Brandt  (http://www.wisdom.weizmann.ac.il/~achi/) is a professor in Weizmann Institute of Science
 of Israel. He also holds a position of Professor in Residence with the Department of Mathematics at the
 University of California at Los Angeles. He is the Chief Scientist of VideoSurf. Brandt got his Ph.D.  
degree at the Weizmann Institute of Science  in 1965, with a thesis on numerical methods in hydrodynamics
 and magnetohydrodynamics.
Professor Brandt's research theme is to develop highly efficient hierarchical numerical algorithms for solving 
practical scientific and engineering problems arising from fluid dynamics, medical imaging, radar analysis, 
astrophysics, weather prediction, oil prospecting, materials design, acoustics, and imaging processing.He
 was the recipient of  the Landau Prize in Mathematics  in 1978, Rothschild Prize in Mathematics  in 1990,
 and the SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science and Engineering  in 2005; the latter awarded for
"pioneering modern multilevel methods, from multigrid solvers for partial differential equations to multiscale 
techniques for statistical physics, and for influencing almost every aspect of contemporary computational 
science and engineering".
