Prof. J.A.C. Weideman

JAC (André) Weideman is Professor of Applied Mathematics at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. He was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa, and educated at the University of the Orange Free State (UOFS) in the same city. In the period 1980-1999 he occupied academic positions at the UOFS, at MIT (visiting), and at Oregon State University in the USA. At OSU he was promoted to Associate Professor in 1995 before returning to South Africa in 1999 to take up his current position.

Among Weideman's most cited research is an early paper on the numerical solution of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, and mid-career papers on software for spectral methods for differential equations as well as an algorithm for the computation of the complex error function. His recent interests include the numerical inversión of the Laplace transform, contour integral methods for PDEs, and the computation of the Painlevé transcendents in the complex plane. Weideman is associate editor of Numerical Algorithms and Electronic Transactions of Numerical Analysis, and was elected a SIAM Fellow in 2017.
