Professor Emeritus Jim Douglas has passed away (Aug 17, 2016)
We were saddened to hear that Jim Douglas, an emeritus member of our department, passed away during this past Spring quarter. Jim was an excellent applied mathematician, who started his career working for Humble Oil (later a part of Exxon-Mobil), and applications to the oil industry were very important to the numerical and analytic work that he had done throughout his career. Jim was a member of our department from 1967 till 1987, when he retired from Chicago and moved to Purdue, where continued his work till his retirement from there in 2003.
