McGill Computational Science and Engineering Seminar

Biweekly on Fridays at 14:00 in Burnside Hall room 1205

For Students, Researchers and Professionals Involved in Scientific Computing

  • Are you involved in computations for real applications and would you like to learn about the latest techniques ?
  • Are you developing new methods and would you be interested in finding applications ?
  • Are you tired of seminars where you don't understand a word a few minutes into the talk?
  • Are you new in this area and would you like to get a feeling for this exciting field of research ?
This seminar might be a unique opportunity for you. We encourage the speakers to give their presentation with a broad audience in mind. This means that the first part of the talk must be an introduction to their field of research understandable to everybody with a general mathematics or engineering background. The middle part of the talk introduces the audience to the particular problem the speaker addresses in his research and the last part of the talk only can become fully technical.
Topics for the 2003-2004 series include
  • Global Positioning Systems
  • Aerodynamic Shape Optimization
  • The Finite Element Method
  • Moving Mesh Methods and Adaptivity
  • Multigrid Methods
  • Domain Decomposition Preconditioners

Program for the fall semester 2003,    Program for the winter semester 2004

(winter 2003, fall 2002, winter 2002, fall 2001 , winter 2001, fall 2000, winter 2000, fall 1999)

For any questions contact the seminar organizer for 2003/2004, Luca Cortelezzi in mechanical engineering, or any of the other CSE representatives in the other departments: Peter Bartello, Xiao-Wen Chang, Jon Webb or Martin Gander.

The CSE seminar, as well as the applied mathematics seminar at McGill are sponsored by the Centre de Recherche Mathematiques (CRM).
