Feng Kang Distinguished Lecture 2011

 Lloyd Nicholas Trefethen FRS  (http://people.maths.ox.ac.uk/trefethen/) is professor of numerical
 analysis and head of the Numerical Analysis Group in the Mathematical Institute at the University of

 Professor Trefethen obtained his PhD at Stanford in 1982. He has published over 120 journal papers 
 spanning a wide range of areas within numerical analysis and applied mathematics, including non-normal
 eigenvalue problems and applications, spectral methods for differential equations, numerical linear algebra, 
 fluid mechanics, computational complex analysis, and approximation theory. He is perhaps best known for
 his work on pseudospectra of non-normal matrices and operators. This work covers theoretical aspects as
 well as numerical algorithms, and applications including fluid mechanics, numerical solution of partial differe-
 ntial equations, numerical linear algebra, shuffling of cards, random matrices, differential equations and lasers.
 Trefethen is currently an ISI highly cited researcher. 
 Trefethen was the first winner of the Leslie Fox Prize for Numerical Analysis. He is a Fellow of the Royal 
 Society and a member of the National Academy of Engineering in the USA. He is the current chairman of 
 Society on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
