Analysis Models and Methods: A conference on Applied Mathematics and Computational Methods in memory of Fred Howes March 01, 2001 - March 03, 2001
Registration Deadline: March 03, 2001 about 18 years ago
To apply for Funding you must register by: December 01, 2000 over 18 years ago
Parent Program: --
Organizers A. Chorin, I. Singer and M. Wright
As manager of the Applied Mathematics Research Program at the Department of Energy, Fred Howes had a clear vision of the dual roles of applied mathematics and computational simulation---as fundamental research in their own right and as connections to applications in science and engineering. Fred's program nurtured and guided a broad spectrum of research at universities and DOE laboratories that has had major impact in both these domains. In honor of Fred's memory, we are organizing a two-day conference to highlight the unifying intellectual themes as well as the mathematical and scientific contributions of research that he sponsored. The speakers will include researchers supported under Fred's program; the talks will cover topics such as analytical and numerical methods for differential equations, asymptotic analysis, mathematical physics, numerical linear algebra, statistical prediction methods, imaging, material science, turbulence, combustion, and subsurface flows.
