Old Dominion University Graduate Programs in Computational and Applied Mathematics

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Old Dominion University invites outstanding students to apply for graduate assistantships in its vigorous applied mathematics and statistics MS and PhD programs for the 2016-2017 academic year. ODU faculty are active in various areas of applied and computational mathematics, scientific computing, analysis, and numerical analysis; they play a key role in ODU’s multidisciplinary Modeling and Simulation graduate program, and the Center for Computational Science. ODU faculty enjoy an excellent funding record, including grants from NSF, NIH, NASA, AFOSR, US Army, and other state and federal funding agencies. For further information, see

Fifteenth International Conference in Approximation Theory, San Antonio, Texas, May 22–25, 2016

This is a paid announcement that appeared in SIAM News.

Organizers: Greg Fasshauer and Larry Schumaker

Invited speakers: Josef Dick (New South Wales), Simon Foucart (Georgia), Elisabeth Larsson (Uppsala), Doron Lubinsky (Georgia Tech), Carla Manni (Rome), Mike Neamtu (Vanderbilt), and Ulrich Reif (Darmstadt).

The eighth Vasil A. Popov Prize will be awarded at the meeting (for nominations visit http://imi.cas.sc.edu/popov-prize-call-nominations/).

Papers in all areas of approximation theory will be organized into contributed sessions, and the organizers invite suggestions for minisymposia.

Travel support: The organizers especially encourage students and postdocs to attend and to present their work. They hope to be able to provide some support for these groups and for members of other under-represented groups. An application form is available on the website.

Information: For details on the conference, see http://www.math.vanderbilt.edu/~AT15.

Student Chapter Funding for 2014-2015

SIAM awarded over $46,000 to 95 chapters for activities taking place throughout the 2014-2015 academic year. Many of SIAM’s Student Chapters have weekly or biweekly meetings, seminars, invited speakers, workshops, field trips to companies and labs, and other interesting activities. Below are a few exciting events our chapters held in fall 2014 or plan to do in spring 2015.

A New Years greeting from the Rochester Institute of Technology chapter.

The Cardiff University chapter hosted their Third SIAM Chapter Day on January 15. Doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers from Cardiff University and other universities were invited to showcase their research in a poster presentation. Guest lecturers included Des Higham (University of Strathclyde), Kevin Glazebrook (University of Lancaster), and Peter Wells (Cardiff University). The chapter also hosts regular seminars given by junior or postdoctoral researchers in mathematics or engineering. Read the rest of this entry »

A new SIAM Activity Group on Education

A proposal to form a SIAM Activity Group (SIAG) on Education was approved by the SIAM Council and Board at their meeting earlier this month. The SIAG will officially start operation on January 1, 2015.

The proposed SIAG will focus on all aspects promoting excellence in applied mathematics educational programs, courses and practice. Broadly inclusive, it will cover industrial mathematics, computational science, modeling, data sciences, applied statistics and the application domains. The primary focus will be undergraduate education but extension of this to graduate and pre-college education is included. A key activity will be to hold a regular conference.

Using math to analyze movement of cells, organisms, and disease

Philadelphia, PA—A few recent SIAM journal papers you should know about:

  Traveling waves model tumor invasion

Cell migration, which is involved in wound healing, cancer and tumor growth, and embryonic growth and development, has been a topic of interest to mathematicians and biologists for decades.

In a paper published recently in the SIAM Journal on Applied Dynamical Systems, authors Kristen Harley, Peter van Heijster, Robert Marangell, Graeme Pettet, and Martin Wechselberger study a model describing cell invasion through directional outgrowth or movement in the context of malignant tumors, in particular, melanoma or skin cancer. Tumor cells move up a gradient, based on the presence of a chemical or chemoattractant – this process is called haptotaxis. Receptors on the exterior of cell walls detect and allow passing of the chemoattractant. Based on the locations of these receptors, cells determine the most favorable migration direction.
