REU banner

The summer REU will run May 18 - July 17th, with the week of July 1st off. The first two weeks (May 18 - May 29th) will have daily lectures on scientific computing - introducing students to scientific computing systems, scientific programming, and writing tools for mathematics. Throughout the 8 weeks, there will also be seminars on various applied-math topics, as time and opportunity permits. The remainder of the time, students will work on independent research projects with a mentor.
