More about the speaker:  

Professor Rubin Landau received his B.S. in Engineering Physics from Cornell University in 1965, his M.S. in Physics in 1966 from the University of Illinois, and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois in 1970. His research specialty is theoretical and computational studies of the interactions of elementary particles with bound systems. He held postdoc positions at the Universities of Pittsburgh and British Columbia, and from 1974-1985 was a regular visitor at Triumf and UBC. He has also held visiting appointments at the University of California, San Diego (the Supercomputer center and the Institute for Nonlinear Science); the Nuclear Theory Institute at the University of Washington; Adelaide University; Melbourne University; IBM Research, Yorktown Heights; the University of Surrey; the Hebrew University of Jerusalem; the Weitzman Institute; and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (Division of Computational Physics), an Oregon State University Distinguished Professor, and since 2003 a Professor emeritus, teaching part time and continuing computational developments.
