Carl A. Rouse

Carl A. Rouse, Class of 1951. Born in 1926, Dr. Rouse graduated from the Case Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in physics and a minor in mathematics. He then attended the California Insititute of Technology where he earned his M.S. in 1953. He earned his doctorate in physics, again with a minor in math, from Caltech in 1956. Dr. Rouse is internationally known for his work in solar and astrophysics, numerical simulation of large-scale fluid flows, and plasma physics. He won recognition for his approach to stellar structure calculations, including an unusual solar model. Dr. Rouse has written numerous articles and commentaries including: “Interior Structure of the Sun,” Nature, 1969. “A Method for the Numerical Calculation of Hydrodynamic Flow and Radiation Diffusion by Implicit Differencing,” Journal of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, Vol. 9, No. 1 (Mar. 1961), pp. 127-135.
