Professor Chang-Ock Lee Received KMS Academic Achievement Award 2020

Professor Lee has also been elected as the President of KSIAM 2021-2022.

The Korean Mathematical Society (KMS) hosted online its Fall Conference 2020 on October 23-24, 2020.

Professor Chang-Ock Lee, together with Professor Jongil Park from Seoul National University, received the KMS Academic Achievement Award 2020, respectively.

Professor Lee is specialized in the development of finite element methods and domain decomposition methods.

One of his major accomplishments was the research result published in 2003 that he solved locking phenomena of elastic problems by proposing new finite element methods.

With research on a domain decomposition approach, Professor Lee worked on dual-primal finite element tearing and interconnecting (FETI-DP) formulations for elliptic problems and Stokes problems. He proposed several preconditioners for the FETI-DP formulations.

In recent years, Professor Lee developed domain decomposition methods (DDMs) based on energy minimization for imaging problems, thereby contributing to the expansion of DDM’s applicability.

Meanwhile, Professor Lee has been elected as the 9th president of the Korean Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (KSIAM) and will preside the organization for two years from 2021 to 2022.
