Herb Keller

CRPC Site Director at Caltech and Professor,
Applied Mathematics, Caltech

Herb Keller is an internationally recognized numerical analyst who has made important contributions to large-scale scientific computing and computational fluid dynamics. He conducts research in scientific computing, bifurcation theory, path following, and homotopy methods. Keller is currently a professor of applied mathematics at Caltech and has been at Caltech since 1967, after leaving the Courant Institute where he had been the Associate Director of the AEC Computing and Applied Mathematics Center.

As CRPC site director at Caltech and a member of the CRPC's Parallel Algorithms for Physical Simulation group, Keller works with and advises a group of eight research scientists and CRPC Prize Fellows in devising numerical methods and concurrent solution algorithms for a variety of problems in fluid dynamics, reaction diffusion, computational relativity, and biology. He maintains close contact with other groups within the CRPC, particularly the template development group headed by Mani Chandy and Dan Meiron (see this issue's "Research Focus" article). His efforts are also closely tied to the work of the Linear Algebra Project involving Jack Dongarra and Dan Sorensen.

Among his publications, Herb Keller has written several texts, research monographs, and more than 140 research papers. To add to his credits, he has directed the dissertations of 25 Ph.D. students and is an associate editor for the Japan Journal of Applied Mathematics, Numerische Mathematik, and the Journal of the Ramanujan Mathematical Society.

Keller's honors and appointments include alternate delegate for the 7th Assembly of the International Mathematics Union. He has been a member of PAMRAN (Panel on Applied Mathematics Research Alternatives for the Navy), the Science Policy Committee for the Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics, the University of Chicago Review Committee for the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory, and the Universities Space Research Association. He has also served on the Science Council for Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Institute for Computer Applications in Science and Engineering and the Research Institute for Advanced Computer Science at the NASA Ames Research Center. Keller is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Guggenheim Foundation. He recently received the von Karman Prize from SIAM. Keller will be honored in June for his lifelong professional achievements at a reception at Caltech.
