Research at the Crossroads of Computational Mathematics and Chemical Engineering

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Center City 2

Computational mathematics has been an integral part of Chemical Engineering since the early sixties. Unfortunately, researchers within the Applied and Computational Mathematics community are only minimally aware of this fact. In this minisymposium, the speakers will present some of the challenging problems that Chemical Engineering researchers have been called on to address. In addition, we hope that the minisymposium will inspire the Applied Mathematics community to think of new paradigms for tackling some Chemical Engineering problems. The speakers will address on different aspects of computational mathematics in such areas as process modeling, uncertainty analysis, and optimization.
