James Burton Serrin (1 November 1926, Chicago, Illinois – 23 August 2012, Minneapolis, Minnesota) was an American mathematician, and a professor at University of Minnesota. He is known for his contributions to [1 ] continuum mechanics, nonlinear analysis, and [2 ] partial differential equations. [3 ] [4 ] [5 ]
He received his doctorate from
Indiana University in 1951 under the supervision of David Gilbarg. From 1954 till 1995 he was on the faculty of the [6 ] University of Minnesota. [6 ] [7 ] [8 ]
