d104>Biography of Nam Parshad Bhatia
Born in Lahore, India (now Pakistan) in 1932, Dr. Nam P. Bhatia studied physics and mathematics at Agra University. He then went to Germany and completed a doctorate in applied mathematics in Dresden in 1961.
After returning to India briefly, he came to the United States in 1962 at the invitation of Solomon Lefschetz. In the US, Dr. Bhatia held research and teaching positions at the Research Institute of Advanced Studies, Baltimore, MD, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, and the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). He was instrumental in developing the graduate programmes in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, and Statistics at UMBC.
Dr. Bhatia is currently Professor Emeritus at UMBC where he continues to pursue his research interests, which include the general theory of Dynamical and Semi-Dynamical Systems with emphasis on Stability, Instability, Chaos, and Bifurcations.
