Applied Math & Analysis

As part of the Department of Mathematics, the Program in Applied Mathematics hosts this ongoing series of seminars. The presentations cover a broad range of topics including numerical analysis, ordinary and partial differential equations, nonlinear systems, scientific computing, dynamical systems theory, mathematical biology, pattern formation, and complex physical systems.
