Scientific Computing and Numerics (SCAN) Seminar

Spring 2015

The focus of this seminar is various methods in scientific computing, the analysis of their convergence properties and computational efficiency, and their adaptation to specific applications. Questions or comments about the seminar should be sent to David Bindel or Alex Vladimirsky. Please go here if you wish to subscribe to the seminar announcement mailing list. Students who plan to attend regularly may take the seminar for credit as CS 7290 or MATH 7290, and should contact the organizers for more information.

The seminar meets Mondays, 1:25-2:15 pm, in 406 Gates Hall.
