Helen Barton Lecture Series in Computational Mathematics
The Lecture Series in Computational Mathematics at UNCG has been organized by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics since Fall 2011. The target audience is graduate students and upper level undergraduate students, as well as faculty members. Experts in their fields will cover a variety of topics in computational mathematics and computational statistics, as well as their applications in other disciplines. A particular aim of the lecture series is to spark interest among students in the newer trends in computational mathematics and its applications.
The schedule for the lecture series is also incorporated into the schedule of talks.
