Numerical Analysis / CCM Seminar

Our seminar focuses on efficient computational methods for numerical problems, mostly phrased in a mathematical language, arising in areas of science throughout the Institute and beyond. Topics include signal processing and data analysis (spike sorting of neural recordings, cryo-EM for protein imaging, audio representation); computational statistics (with applications such as the ocean microbiome); PDEs (fluid flow, waves), integral equations, spectral methods, "fast" algorithms (i.e., close to optimal complexity); software libraries and programming. We discuss research topics as well as review classical topics in numerical analysis.

The time is 10:30am-noon on Wednesdays, unless announced. We meet at CCM, either the 4th-floor conference room (for less formal discussions), or the 7th or other odd-floored classroom (for external speakers), both at 162 Fifth Ave. All from Flatiron are welcome, and guests from outside must arrange a visitor's pass.

Other events of interest are also listed in [square brackets].

Please contact Alex Barnett or Cindy Rampersad-Phillips to arrange to speak or invite someone.
