"Actress Danica McKellar, the adorable Winnie Cooper on the 1980s/90s hit television series The Wonder Years, is all grown up now, and married with a child. The stunner, author of four math books for girls, also has a beautiful mind. Awhile back, I had the pleasure of chatting with the UCLA graduate, now 41, about life and her early acting roles."

Professor Heinz-Otto Kreiss

The department is sad to announce that Professor Emeritus Heinz-Otto Kreiss, passed away on Wednesday, December 16th. He died peacefully in his home without pain or anxiety.

One of the great figures in numerical analysis and applied partial differential equations passed away December 16, 2015 at his home in Stockholm.  Heinz, as everyone called him, was a faculty member in the Department from 1987-2001 but this fact understates his influence on UCLA’s Applied Mathematics Group.
