Computational and Applied Mathematics
Luncheon Seminar

Department of Mathematics,   Penn State University
Spring 2005

320 Whitmore Laboratory
Fridays, 12:20pm-1:30pm

This informal 30-minute seminar is designed to allow students to meet and interact with CAM researchers and outside visitors. While technically at an introductory graduate level, the seminar addresses front-line research problems.
