Pierre-Louis Lions Paris Dauphine University, France France Collège de France, France

École polytechnique, France[45]

"... such nonlinear partial differential equation simply do not have smooth or even C1 solutions existing after short times. ... The only option is therefore to search for some kind of "weak" solution. This undertaking is in effect to figure out how to allow for certain kinds of "physically correct" singularities and how to forbid others. ... Lions and Crandall at last broke open the problem by focusing attention on viscosity solutions, which are defined in terms of certain inequalities holding wherever the graph of the solution is touched on one side or the other by a smooth test function."

Resilient Barnstar Hires.png The Resilient Barnstar
I appreciate your work at Fields Medal, and your willingness to come back after a setback and work with other editors. There are lots of excellent editors (many of them admins) who got drawn into an edit war and were blocked, particularly as new users. It's easy to do, and it's not a mark of shame. Your perseverance and civil actions are a good example. Acroterion (talk) 01:49, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

B Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering[edit]

I checked to see if I could fix the red link for the Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering. It turns out there are five articles across EnWikipedia trying to link to it, and all five try to link to it under slightly different names. I must have been hit by a moment of insanity but for some reason I'm in the middle of trying to fix this. We don't have an article for it but I did find one on the Russian Wikipedia. So... ummm... I'm seeing if I can pull it over using Google-translate. Alsee (talk) 05:19, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

@Alsee Keep up the good work! In my opinion, you can link the Russian version until you or anyone else can translate and build a reliable page for this Institution. And about your suggestion on removing "Current/Last Affiliation" column of the table, I think it would be inappropriate since many of laureates do not work on the same institution in the time of receiving the medal. I know that table somehow looks ugly, but suppose that a reader who has very little information about the medal, is interested to learn about it. if we just have the "Affiliation (when awarded)" column, it would give him/her misleading info. Do you agree? Cheers Rezameyqani (talk) 05:33, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
@Rezameyqani Thanks. Don't worry, I'm not touching Last Affiliation. I was just tossing out my thoughts. Birthplace and Nationality columns were actually causing problems, we're better off without them. I'm fine with Last Affiliation... it just seems weak. All the other columns have clear strong value.

Speedy deletion nomination of Laura Rozen[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Laura Rozen requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not credibly indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator. reddogsix (talk) 20:51, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited David Aldous, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page American. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
