Biological and Physical Modeling Applications

Sponsored by the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)

4:00 PM-6:00 PM

This minisymposium will feature talks by female recent Ph.D.'s on modeling applications of mathematics in various scenarios. Most of the applications involve ordinary or partial differential equations, governing biological models. One talk involves solar magnetohydrodynamics.
