Organizing Committee

The faculty advisers will present a variety of interdisciplinary research topics utilizing large-scale linear algebra, model reduction, randomized algorithms, and deep learning. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the theoretical underpinnings of these research topics in applied and computational mathematics and will help develop open-source software tools that accomplish data-driven scientific predictions.

The faculty will begin the program with brief introductory talks. Throughout the eight-week program, students will work on assigned projects in groups of two to four, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants. Students will meet daily, give regular talks about their findings, attend mini-courses, guest talks, and professional development seminars, practice coding, version control, and Tex typesetting. Students will learn how to collaborate mathematically, and they will work closely in their teams to write up their research into a poster and/or paper by the end of the program.
