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.
