Seminar Schedule

Location: Math Dept Seminar Room (25-208B)

Time: Thursdays, 10:10-11:00am

The applied math seminar is open to any and all interested participants. We discuss topics in which mathematics is used to solve a wide range of scientific and engineering problems. Applied math faculty will present some of the seminars, but faculty from other departments are also encouraged to discuss their projects in this seminar series.

Please note: In the 2012-2013 academic year, the applied math seminar series had fewer talks than in previous years, due primarily to the interview process for a tenure-track position in applied mathematics. The interviews were in the Winter 2013 quarter. In the Spring 2013 quarter, Charles Camp gave one Math Department colloquium, and one Physics Department colloquium.

Previous years' seminars:
Winter and Spring 2006
Fall 2006 - Spring 2007
Fall 2007 - Spring 2008
Fall 2008 - Spring 2009
Fall 2009 - Spring 2010
Fall 2010 - Spring 2011
Fall 2011 - Spring 2012
