Conference in Memory of Jim Greenberg

In Memory of Jim Greenberg

With profound sadness we acknowledge the loss of Jim Greenberg on August 3, 2018.

Jim received his Ph.D. from Brown in 1966, working under the supervision of Mort Gurtin. His research covered an especially broad range of topics in applied mathematics, including wave propagation in continuous media, hyperbolic conservation laws, traffic flow, phase field models, viscoelastic flows, and cellular automata. He served as department head from 1995 to 2002.

Jim was an active member of the CNA until the end, and the CNA seminars will never be the same without his presence.

A Conference in Memory of Jim Greenberg was held on November 27, 2018 in the Rachel Mellon Walton room of the Posner Hall.
