Computational and Applied Mathematics Luncheon Seminar,
Spring 2004



Penn State University, Department of Mathematics
41 McAllister Building (basement)
Friday, 12:15pm-1:15pm

This informal 30-minute seminar is designed to allow students to meet and interact with CAM researchers and outside visitors. While technically at an introductory graduate level, the seminar addresses front-line research problems.
