At 4 PM on October 17 the NCSU SIAM student chapter will be holding a Mathematics in Industry seminar in SAS 2102. Steven Hamilton from Oak Ridge National Laboratory will be discussing the DOE Exascale Computing Project. Here is his abstract:
The DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP), a collaborative effort between the DOE Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration, is aimed at accelerating the development of both hardware and software for the next generation of supercomputers, which will be capable of computational performance in excess of one exaflops (10^18 floating point operations per second). ECP is divided into three main research focus areas: applications development, software technology, and hardware technology. In this talk, we will briefly discuss each of the focus areas and describe a number of locations where mathematicians and computational scientists are heavily contributing. Particular focus will be placed on highlighting ECP subprojects in which Oak Ridge National Laboratory plays a significant leadership role, including modeling and simulation for nuclear reactors, materials science, and fusion energy.
On Tuesday, September 11, 2018 there will be an introduction to SIAM seminar in Daniels Hall 341 at 3:50 PM. An overview of the benefits and activities of SIAM will be provided. Coffee and cookies will be provided.
The SIAM student chapter will be continuing our faculty lecture series this spring with three great talks. The schedule is given below.
Arvind Saibaba, Wednesday February 8 at 4:30 PM
Tim Kelley, Wednesday March 15 at 4:30 PM
Mansoor Haider, Wednesday April 19 at 4:30 PM
This lecture series in intended to provide entry level talks introducing grad student to useful tools that we may not see within our coursework. This is a great opportunity to broaden your math toolkit and interact with faculty in a small classroom setting. More detailed announcements will come as we approach the time of each talk.
The SIAM student chapter is hosting our final meeting for the fall semester next Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 11:30 in SAS 4201. We welcome Steven Hamilton from Oak Ridge National Laboratory who will be talking about collaborations between mathematicians and engineers. His title and abstract are below. Pizza will be served.
The second Faculty Lecture Series talk for the fall will be Active Subspace Techniques for Physical, Biological and Financial Models by Dr. Ralph Smith (se Faculty Lecture Series page for abstract). The talk will be from 5:00-6:00 on Wednesday October 26th; the room is TBA. This will be immediately after the Graduate Training Seminar.
