CCMA Luncheon Seminar (2012 Archive)

Fridays from 12:20pm to 01:30pm in MB114


Designed mainly for graduate students interested in computational and applied mathematics and related areas, this seminar usually gives an introduction to a research topic without assuming the audience has any prior knowledge on the topic, and, in most cases offers an introduction to the CAM Colloquium by, for example, defining basic concepts important to the Colloquium talk.
 
The seminar is 30 minutes long, followed by a discussion over lunch.

The schedule of speakers is below.
