Person: Simon, Leon Melvyn
Leon Simon is an Australian mathematician who made contributions to geometric measure theory, harmonic maps and partial differential equations.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Following the award of his Ph.D., Simon was appointed as a Lecturer in Mathematics at Flinders University of South Australia for the academic year 197273.
 Simon's coauthor Richard M Schoen was his first doctoral student and was working on his Ph.D. under Simon's supervision at the time the above paper was written.
 In 1976 Simon returned to Australia being a Visiting Professor at the University of Adelaide during the academic year 197677, then was appointed Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota where he worked for the year 197778 before again returning to Australia when appointed as Professor of Mathematics at the University of Melbourne.
 Simon published Lectures on geometric measure theory in 1983.
 In 1986 Simon was appointed Professor in the Mathematics Department at Stanford University.
 In a series of papers over the past ten years, Simon has developed methods for analysing this structure.
 In 1996 Simon published Theorems on regularity and singularity of energy minimizing maps which was based on lectures which he gave while holding a visiting position at Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich.
 We have mentioned above some of the honours which Simon has received.
Born 6 July 1945, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.
