Graeme Milton

Professor Milton has done pioneering work on rigorous bounds and homogenization of solid composites, cross property correlations, and more recently on cloaking in elasticity and electromagnetism.  There will be a Graeme Milton symposium in SES 2007 where several aspects of Professor Milton's work will be discussed.   Professor Milton is also the recipient of several awards including the 2003 Ralph E. Kleinman Prize from SIAM for his contributions in bridging mathematics and applications .
