James Glimm

James Glimm Distinguished Professor, Ph.D., 1959
Columbia Univ: Mathematical Physics; Nonlinear Waves 

James Glimm has made fundamental contributions to nonlinear analysis—winning the Amer. Math. Soc. Steele Prize— to quantum field theory—winning the American Physical Soc. Heineman Prize—and to computational fluid dynamics.  The Department of Energy adopted Glimm’s front-track methodology for shock-wave calculations, e.g., simulating weapons performance.  Glimm is a member of the Nat. Academy of Science and Academia Sinica and is a recipient of the National Medal of Science.  In 2007-08, he was President of the Amer. Math Soc.

Matthew G. Reuter

Matthew G. Reuter

Research Assistant Professor, Ph.D., 2011
Northwestern University: Chemistry;Computational Chemistry; Mathematical Physics

Matt Reuter joined SBU in 2014 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to coming to Stony Brook he was a Research Associate in the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern University, where he studied single-molecule behavior. He received B.Sc. degrees in chemistry and mathematics from Michigan Technological University (2006) and a Ph.D. degree in theoretical/ computational chemistry from Northwestern University (2011). From 2011 to 2013, he was a Eugene P. Wigner Fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he developed theories and algorithms for studying electron transport processes and materials chemistry. Matt is the lead author of 17 peer-reviewed journal articles. He was also the recipient of a U.S. DoE Computational Science Graduate Fellowship for most of his graduate studies at Northwestern.
