Graduate Prerequisites: Analysis (Math 630), or PDEs (Math 673), or ODEs (Math 414 or 670), or numerics (AMSC 666 or 660), or probability (STAT 600). Some knowledge of partial differential equations would be useful. Permission of a Team Director.
Undergraduate Prerequisites: Advanced calculus (Math 410) and differential equations (Math 246). Any of the following are useful but not required: complex variables (Math 463), ODE (Math 414), PDE (Math 462), computation (AMSC 460 or AMSC 466). Permission of a Team Director.
Graduate Program: Team members will make presentations either on readings of fundamental papers or book chapters, or on their own analytical and/or numerical investigations. When appropriate, these may be developed into more formal presentations for seminars, conferences, or publication. Team members will be asked to help mentor more junior team members.
Undergraduate Program: Same as above, as appropriate to the background of the student.
Work Schedule: Meetings will be held weekly.
