Helen Barton Lecture Series in Computational Mathematics

The Helen Barton Lecture Series in Computational Mathematics at UNCG has been organized by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics since Spring 2012. The target audience is graduate students and upper level undergraduate students, as well as faculty members. A particular aim of the lecture series is to bring in experts to provide lectures to spark interest among students in the newer trends in computational mathematics, computational statistics, and their applications. This lecture series is supported by the Helen Barton Excellence Professorship Funds.

The schedule for the lecture series is also incorporated into the schedule of talks.

*All talks will be held virtually for the Fall 2021 semester. Email math_sci@uncg.edu for a link to the talks.
