  • Special lectures at the CCMA will be given on April 28 and 29, 2003, by Professor David E. Keyes who is the Richard F. Barry Professor of Mathematics & Statistics and Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Old Dominion University and Acting Director of the Institute for Scientific Computing Research (ISCR) at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. More information as well as the schedule of the lectures can be found here.
  • The Fall 2002 Finite Element Circus was hosted by the CCMA. The Finite element Circus is a regular conference held twice a year. The primary discussion topics usually are recently developed techniques in the finite element method and other modern numerical methods for partial differential equations.
  • Starting from Fall 2001, the Department of Mathematics offers a new graduate course in Applied Mathematics: MATH 598, Introduction to Applied Mathematics. This course was developed by the faculty accosiated with CCMA. The topics covered and the syllabus were coordinated with faculty from other departments. Although this is the first time such course has been offered, it has a great popularity and the enrolment is unusually high for a graduate course: 46 students.
  • The CCMA co-sponsored and co-organized the International Symposium on Computational and Applied PDES in Zhangjiajie, China, from July 1 through 7, 2001.
  • Co-director Doug Arnold to give 1 hour talk at the International Congress of Mathematics, August 20-28, Beijing, China
  • At the end of August 2001, Doug Arnold assumed the position of Director of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications in Minneapolis.
