Subject: Research on Peter Lax, Mathematician

I am researching Peter Lax for a math project.  Do you know of any 
web sites that I could find information about him?  I have looked 
through encyclopedias, surfed the Internet, and visited the 
library.  I only have one resource that my math teacher let me 
borrow.  I know he's a math professor at NYU and his fields are 
differential equations and numerical analysis.  Can you help me 
since my time is running out?
