Mathematical Sciences faculty and students participate in a number conferences:
Kliakhandler Lecture - The Mathematics of the Faraday Cage
Thursday, October 4
Nick Trefethen, Professor of Numerical Analysis at Oxford University, gave the fourth Kliakhandler Lecture on October 4. Professor Trefethen is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and a past president of SIAM. He has an AB from Harvard and MS and PhD degrees from Stanford, and held faculty positions at MIT and Cornell before joining the faculty at Oxford, where he is a Fellow of Balliol College.
The 2017 Kliakhandler Conference is intended to stimulate research collaboration in the development, analysis, and application of statistical techniques for complex, high-dimensional data arising in real world applications.
The program aims to mix leading researchers and local faculty in computational mathematics together to infuse graduate students with the fundamentals of finite element methods and cutting-edge PDE and matrix eigenvalue problems.
The International Conference on Numerical Analysis and Inverse Problems intends to bring leading researchers to discuss the recent developments on numerical analysis, scientific computing, and inverse problems. The topics of the conference include finite element methods for eigenvalue problems, finite element methods for Maxwell's equation, computational inverse problems, inverse scattering problems. The conference seeks to build collaboration among the participants, in particular, the young researchers within five years of graduation.
The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers and students interested in algebraic combinatorics, combinatorial designs, finite geometry, graphs, and their applications to communications, classical and quantum error-correcting codes, cryptography, information security, and other related areas, in order to promote new linkages and collaborations.
