Indiana University Bloomington faculty member Roger M. Temam has been selected for membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the nation’s oldest and most prestigious honorary societies.
Temam is director of the Institute for Scientific Computing and Applied Mathematics and Distinguished Professor and College Professor in the Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences.
Temam is credited with defining the domain of discourse in several large areas of applied mathematics, including numerical computation of fluid flows, slow dynamics and inertial manifolds, turbulence theory, and climate modeling. Described as “among the five best and most influential applied mathematicians alive today,” he is one of the top experts in mathematical models for climatology and a leading expert worldwide in nonlinear partial differential equations and their applications. He has received numerous international honors and awards and is a fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Mathematical Society.
