Bob Pego named AMS Fellow
The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes mathematicians who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics. Bob Pego was recently named an AMS Fellow for contributions to partial differential equations and applied mathematics. His research concerns dynamical behavior in nonlinear partial differential equations that model a wide range of phenoma including incompressible fluid flow, water waves, and coagulation dynamics. Professor Pego joins CMU Department of Mathematical Sciences faculty Irene Fonseca, Alan Frieze and David Kinderlehrer among the ranks of AMS Fellows.
