Spring 2005
Seminar 2: Current Literature in Applied Mathematics

Instructor: Luminita Vese
Office: MS 7620-D.

In this weekly seminar, graduate students read and present papers from current literature in applied mathematics.

Topics are (but not limited to): variational models (energy minimization), non-linear partial differential equations (elliptic and parabolic), functions of bounded variation, inverse problems, image analysis (including medical imaging), free boundary problems, curve evolution. Additional topics such as wavelets and Besov spaces, statistical methods and stochastic differential equations could be discussed as well.

Meeting time and location: Thursday 4-5pm, MS 7629 (enter by MS 7619)
