This volume is a Special Issue of the journal, Quarterly of Applied Mathematics. It features the text of invited talks given at the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University during the 50th anniversary celebration. In the spirit of reflection, assessment and planning for the future, the symposium was an opportunity for distinguished scientists to communicate their work and their views on applied mathematics. The book not only presents the authors' scientific contributions, it also gives evidence to the future direction of applied mathematics.

Published by Brown University, and distributed worldwide by the American Mathematical Society.


Graduate students and research mathematicians working in applied mathematics.
