The I.E. Block Lecture
This lecture series is in honor of Ed Block for his tireless efforts to promote and nourish mathematics and its applications. The spirit of the lecture is to identify issues which will challenge the SIAM community. The lecture will be delivered at every annual meeting and will deal with topics such as emerging areas of applied mathematics, opportunities for mathematical and computational analysis in the solution of important industrial and societal problems, strengthening the ties between mathematics and its applications, and the education of applied mathematicians.
The lecturer is William F. Ballhaus Jr., Lockheed Martin Corporation, Bethesda, MD.
