About the Applied Mathematics Lab 

The Applied Mathematics Lab of
the Courant Institute is an interdisciplinary research lab whose
interests span applied mathematics, physics, and biology. It
occupies a suite of rooms on the ground floor
of Warren Weaver Hall at 251 Mercer street, just one block west of
Broadway. The laboratory opened in the
Spring of 1998 following a space renovation funded by the Estate of
Edward A. Sears and by the Mobil Foundation.
Seed equipment for scientific computation was generously donated by
SGI. The laboratory joins a small but select group of
experimental facilities housed within
Departments of Mathematics. The AML is a dual use space for both
experimental research and educational laboratory demonstration, and
is an arena where mathematical theory and numerical simulation collide
with experimental observation and measurement. One focus of
experimental research in the lab is the interaction of flowing fluids
with moving and flexible bodies.
