The Scientific Career of Roland Glowinski

  • Olivier PironneauEmail author
Part of the Computational Methods in Applied Sciences book series (COMPUTMETHODS, volume 15)


Roland Glowinski is a former student of one of the best school for mathematics and engineering in France, the Ecole Polytechnique.

After a first employment at the French television company ORTF, he decided to go back to the university for a thesis (thèse d’Etat) and received his degree and a position of professor at the University of Paris VI in 1970. Already a fervent admirer and colleague of Professor Jacques-Louis Lions, his former advisor, he succeeded him as head of the numerical analysis group at IRIA (now INRIA) in 1976.
