Computational Methods and Applications to Physical Systems

This minisymposium is sponsored by Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society/Société Canadienne de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles

2:00 PM-4:00 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 2102
(This session will run until 4:30 PM.)

Computational methods are playing an important role in applicatications to various physical systems. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss environmental diffusion problems, the modeling of materials such as shape memory alloys, flow induced vibrations in transmission lines, and large-scale computation in hydrodynamic stability theory. They will focus on the formulation of an appropriate model and the computational methods required to solve it.
