Life’s work of Professor Michael Hayes honoured

In recognition of over forty years of scientific work by Professor Michael Hayes (Emeritus Professor of Mathematical Physics), Sage Publications has published a collection of papers which first appeared in the journal Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids (Vol 10, pp. 129-718, 2005).

Presenting Professor Hayes with the publication, Professor Owen Lewis spoke of the important international contribution he made to continuum mechanics and wave propagation in finitely deformed materials.

“The fact that international peers from twelve countries contributed to the series to mark Michael Hayes’ 65th birthday is testament to the high regard in which he is held. UCD is proud and honoured to call him one of our own.”

The collection includes written versions of most of the invited presentations delivered at a Symposium on Mathematical Problems in Elastodynamics and Related Continuum Theories held in honour of Professor Hayes at The Palazzone in Cortona, Italy, during June 23–27, 2003. The symposium was organised by Professor G. Saccomandi (Università di Lecce) with the assistance of Professors Ph. Boulanger (Université Libre de Bruxelles) and R. J. Knops (Heriot-Watt University), and was sponsored by the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica with additional support from University College Dublin and from the Gruppo Nazionale Fisica Matematica. All of the papers have been reviewed by anonymous referees.

In his introduction to the publication, Professor Millard Beatty, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, hoped that this collection of papers and the accompanying biographical account demonstrate the breadth of Michael Hayes’s scientific influence and worthily celebrate him as an esteemed colleague and respected friend.
