M16. Recent Advances in Inverse Problems and Distributed Parameter Systems

Minisymposium dedicated to the 80th anniversary of an outstanding expert in inverse problems Distinguished University Professor, LeRoy B. Martin, Jr. Distinguished Professor, Associate Director for the Center for Research in Scientific Computation at North Carolina State University, H.T. Banks

Since the middle of the 1970’s, Professor H. Thomas Banks, has been one of the world’s most distinguished and active researchers in the area of parameter identification and inverse problems for partial differential equations. Mathematical topics to which H.T. Banks has made contributions (many motivated by applied problems) include: control of delay and partial differential equations, approximation and computational methods, identification and inverse problem methodology for linear and nonlinear distributed parameter systems, nonlinear damping and hysteresis modeling, homogenization, and the mathematics of smart material structures. Service to the profession has always been an important obligation for H.T. Banks. He has received generous recognition for his service and research efforts with students, postdocs and colleagues. These honors include Professor Honoraire, Universite de Compaigne, 1977; appointed University Professor and Drexel Professor of Mathematics, NCSU, 1992; elected Fellow, IEEE; Fellow, Institute of Physics,; Fellow, SIAM; Fellow, AAAS; IEEE-CSS Control Systems Technology Award, 1996; Distinguished Alumni Award, Purdue Univ., 1998; named Alumni Distinguished Graduate Professor, NCSU, 2000. He has served on more that 20 editorial boards over the past 20 years.

In this minisymposium we will recognize his accomplishments with presentations by a variety of scientists on topics which are connected to and influenced by the pioneering work of Professor Banks.
