Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium (2009 Archive)

Fridays from 03:35pm to 04:25pm in MB106


This colloquium, following the style discussed on the AMS web site http://www.ams.org/profession/leaders/workshops/gcoll.pdf, focuses on a broad question in the field or discusses a specific question in a general way to facilitate a conversation between researchers (including graduate students) with different areas of expertise. The talk is 50 minutes long plus about 10 minutes for questions.
 
The schedule of speakers is below.
