## Outstanding undergrad research in SIURO last month

SIAM Undergraduate Research Online, SIAM’s web-based publication often referred to as SIURO, publishes outstanding undergraduate research in applied and computational mathematics. Two types of articles can be found in SIURO: papers to which undergraduates have made a significant contribution, and expository (survey) papers of high quality written by a faculty member or researcher for an undergrad audience.

The latest paper by Ling Han Meng, Joseph Geumlek, Holly Chu, Justin Hoogenstyrd under their advisor Ernie Esser is called Contextual Point Matching for Video Stabilization. The paper explores the many videos that suffer from a shaking or moving camera that distract viewers from the subject or scene. The authors describe a process called video stabilization which uses software to fix unwanted movements. Their method attempts to find point correspondences in subsequent frames of footage with great success, according to the authors. Video stabilization not only provides better results compared to other methods, it can also be implemented without significantly increasing computational costs.

Additional papers will be posted online as they are accepted.

## RTG Summer School on Microlocal Analysis and Inverse Problems

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

*July 8–26, 2013*

*University of Washington, Seattle*

The Research Training Group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington will host a summer school on solving inverse problems via microlocal analysis, aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduates who have the required background. Students will attend lectures in the morning and problem sessions in small groups with mentors in the afternoon. On-campus accommodation and meals will be provided, plus a travel allowance of up to $600. The Summer School is supported by an NSF Research Training Grant. Support is restricted to U.S. citizens/permanent residents; international students can be considered but will have to pay all their own expenses.

The course will be taught by Mark Anastasio, Guillaume Bal, Francois Monard, Plamen Stefanov, and Gunther Uhlmann.

Prospective attendees can visit the website for a full course description and prerequisites.

## MBI 2013 Undergraduate Research Program at Ohio State

### May 20 – August 16, 2013

The goal of this MBI NSF-funded program is to introduce students to exciting new areas of mathematical biology, to involve them in collaborative research with their peers and faculty mentors, and to increase their interest in mathematical biology. The program consists of three parts – each including a mix of educational and social experiences:

- Two-week Introduction (May 20-31, 2013): Tutorials, computer labs, and short-term team efforts designed to introduce students to a variety of topics in mathematical biology.
- REU Program (June 3 – August 9, 2013): An 8-10 week individualized research experience as part of a research team at one of the participating host institutions.
*****Apply for Program***** - Capstone Conference (August 12-16, 2013): A student centered conference featuring talks and posters by students doing research in mathematical biology, keynotes by prominent mathematical biologists, a graduate studies recruitment fair, and other special features including a conference dinner and social event.

The on-line registration form will require:

- Two letters of reference
- A ranked list of three projects that you want to participate in (see below)
- A statement indicating your reasons for wanting to participate in this program

*****To receive full consideration, completed applications must be received by January 31, 2013.*****
