MS7/Harbor 2

Scientific Visualization (Part 1 of 2)

The rapidly developing field of Scientific Visualization seeks to address the unprecedented ability of scientists, engineers, and applied mathematicians to produce vast amounts of numerical data resulting from both computations and observations. Blending software engineering, computer graphics, and mathematical and/or scientific understanding, investigators in this new area strive to find visual representations of data in ways that bring out relevant information. The two sessions of this mini-symposium will feature presentations by those who are working to develop generic software tools for scientific visualization, as well as those with particular scientific problems in mind. (For part 2, see MS36.) Organizers: Gilbert Strang, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Lee L. Zia, University of New Hampshire
