Biographical Note
Professor David M. Young, Jr. is widely recognized for his contributions
to numerical solutions of partial differential equations and to scientific
computing. Born in Massachusetts in 1923, Young received a Ph.D. in
Mathematics from Harvard University in 1950. His dissertation is considered to
be one of the early milestones in the history of scientific computing. Young's
career paralleled the dawn of computer technology, and thus he was one of the
first mathematicians to combine numerical analysis with computer science. Upon
his arrival at the University of Texas in 1958, Young founded the Computation
Center and served as its director until 1970, when he then founded the Center
for Numerical Analysis (CNA). Young served as director of the CNA until 1999,
and remains at the University of Texas as Ashbel Smith Emeritus Professor and
Director Emeritus at the Center for Numerical Analysis.
