UI mathematics professor Han receives James Van Allen Fellowship

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa mathematics Professor Weimin Han has received the 2000 James Van Allen Natural Sciences Fellowship.

With the $15,000 award, Han will continue research on a posteriori analysis for modeling errors in engineering problems and a posteriori error analysis for numerical solutions of nonlinear boundary value problems arising in mechanics.

The fellowship is one of two faculty awards given in alternate years by the university and exists to encourage and support work done in the areas of physical, natural and mathematical sciences. The money can be used for various incurred costs, including summer research, visiting lecturer reimbursement, graduate research assistant appointments, supplies, equipment and travel.
