Distinguished Colloquium Series in Interdisciplinary and Applied Mathematics

Applications have inspired the development of mathematical fields, while mathematics, driven by compelling ideas, has had important applications quite distant from the original context. This Colloquium Series highlights this dynamic exchange between mathematics and engineering, computation, the physical sciences, the biological sciences and the social sciences.

Organizing Committee
D. Goldfarb (IEOR), E. Grinspun (Computer Science & APAM), I. Karatzas (Mathematics), M.I. Weinstein (APAM & Mathematics)

This lecture series is made possible with the generous support of Columbia Engineering Dean Mary C. Boyce.

For information, please contact Professor M.I. Weinstein, miw2103@columbia.edu.
