Advances in Control of Partial Differential Equations

A Conference in Honor of Thomas I. Seidman

The conference, Advances in Control of Partial Differential Equations, is being held on October 28-29, 2006, in honor of the 70th birthday of UMBC Professor Thomas I. Seidman.

Dr. Seidman received his Ph.D. from New York University with K. O. Friedrichs in 1959. In his early career, he spent time both at national laboratories and in industry, before joining the faculty at Wayne State University and Carnegie Mellon University. In 1972, he moved to UMBC and is now serving UMBC in the 35th year.

With this conference, we will honor Dr. Seidman's outstanding research productivity, which includes over 150 papers with more than 60 collaborators, and his continuing research productivity publishing over 4 papers per year. His long and distinguished career over 50 years has particularly impacted the area of control of partial differential equations.
