Members of the Mathematics Department at the University of St. Thomas recently learned that the Computational Science Training for Undergraduates in the Mathematical Sciences (CSUMS) proposal they submitted to the National Science Foundation was funded.
The project entails the formulation of undergraduate research cohorts that spend one year in an intensive research program to learn how computation is used in applied mathematical research. The faculty group consists of 13 faculty members from the University of St. Thomas, Augsburg College, and Macalester College.
During the Fall semester of the first project year (2008-2009) the Mathematics Department will offer an intensive seminar on computational methods to cohort students. Professors Stolarska and Van Fleet will lead this seminar. Please check the links below for pdf files, Matlab m-files, or Mathematica notebooks that are related to the seminars.
Over the course of the five-year program, the following research subprojects will be offered. Details about these subprojects are given below.
