Juan J. Manfredi, vice provost for undergraduate studies and faculty member in mathematics, has been elected a foreign member of the Societies Academy (Class of Natural Sciences) of the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters for his accomplishments in the field of mathematics.
This honor recognizes his collaborative ventures with researchers at the Norwegian Technical University of Trondheim, the Mittag-Leffler Institute in Stockholm, and with colleagues at other Scandinavian institutions. His research focuses on the partial differential equations that govern the nonlinear potential theory of quasi-regular mappings in higher dimensions, their sub-elliptic extensions and their game theoretic interpretations.
Manfredi has published extensively in the major peer-reviewed journals of his discipline and has had strong National Science Foundation (NSF) support for his research.
The Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters, the oldest learned academy in Norway, has promoted scientific scholarship since its founding in 1760.
