Penn presents inaugural symposium on applied mathematics and computational science
Date:9/26/2008

WHAT: From radar to GPS, X-ray tomography to Google searches, higher mathematics and computation are the warps in the fabric of the modern world. The University of Pennsylvania's new graduate program in Applied Mathematics and Computational Science is hosting its inaugural symposium to spotlight the frontiers of research and provide a resource for members of the news media.

Talks will be given by international leaders in subjects connected to large-scale computation, medical imaging, image and data analysis and the structure of composite materials, followed by a panel discussion on "What Is Computational Science?"

WHO: Speakers and panelists: Marsha Berger, New York University; Herbert Edelsbrunner, Duke University; Robert Ghrist, Leslie Greengard and Michael Kearns, Penn; Robert D. MacPherson, Institute for Advanced Study; and Michael I. Miller, Johns Hopkins University.

WHERE: Wu & Chen Auditorium, Levine Hall, 3300 Walnut St.

WHEN: 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 27

DETAILS: The graduate group in AMCS at Penn offers both masters and doctoral degrees and provides the opportunity to work on interdisciplinary research projects drawn from image analysis, robotics, machine learning, mathematical biology, bioinformatics and genomics, as well as more traditional applied-math fields like materials science, fluid mechanics, numerical analysis, inverse scattering, finance and condensed matter physics. Additional information is available from Charles L. Epstein, professor of mathematics and of radiology in mathematics and graduate group chair of AMCS, at cle@math.upenn.edu.
