Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium (2014 Archive)

Mondays from 02:30pm to 03:30pm in MB106

This colloquium, following the style discussed on the AMS web site, 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.
