James Glimm has made fundamental contributions to nonlinear analysis — winning the Amer. Math. Soc. Steele Prize — to quantum field theory — winning the American Physical Society 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 National 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.
