Applied Math REU- Deadline Feb. 13, 2015

Saturday, February 14, 2015

Our 2015 REU application page is up on mathprograms: http://www.mathprograms.org/db/programs/346. In addition to applied math, statistics, and computer science students we are looking for students with interest in physics and robotics and plan to have projects in both of those areas.

The REU is an 8 week summer program in the Applied Mathematics group at UCLA. Students will have the opportunity to join an active research group with projects in image processing, control theory, fluid dynamics, mathematical biology and medicine, mathematics of crime, computer graphics, and other topics. The successful applicant will work with faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and other undergraduates. Throughout the summer, the REU program will be augmented by faculty-run informational sessions on research, careers in mathematics, and preparing for graduate school.

Students will start June 15 and finish August 7. In the final week of the program, students are expected to present the results of their research in both a written report and an oral presentation. For some projects the students may be asked to write software. The faculty mentor will identify the "deliverables" at the beginning of the summer and will work closely with the students in preparing the final result.
