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.
Credit: Students can participate without signing up for credit. Students who sign up for credit typically take one credit; they are expected to attend regularly and to make one presentation. Students who sign up for two credits are expected to attend regularly and to either make three presentations or make one presentation and produce a related written report or project. This last option has been used by AMSC students to prepare for their oral candidacy exam; the written part becomes their AMSC Candidacy Prospectus, and their presentation becomes practice for their oral exam. Students who sign up for three credits will be expected to attend regularly, to make three presentations, and to produce a related written report or project.
Work Schedule: Meetings will be held weekly.
