The Basil Nicolaenko Memorial Distinguished Lecture Series in Nonlinear Studies was created to recognize and honor Professor Nicolaenko's exemplary career in mathematics and his passion and intellectual curiosity for teaching nonlinear studies. He was one of the co-founding members of the Center for Nonlinear Studies at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1980 and joined the ASU mathematics faculty in 1988 where he was a key leader in the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group.

### BASIL NICOLAENKO DISTINGUISHED NONLINEAR STUDIES ENDOWMENT

The Basil Nicolaenko Distinguished Nonlinear Studies Endowment creates a legacy that will forever recognize the important and long lasting contributions that he made to our community, to the study of nonlinear studies at ASU, and to mathematics worldwide. Representatives from the ASU School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering will select the speakers for the lecture series and also scholarship and fellowship recipients from qualified students enrolled at Arizona State University in degree programs that are associated with nonlinear studies.
