As part of our new NSF research training group (RTG) in Modeling & Simulation, we will be organizing a lunchtime group meeting (the MSG lunch) aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and faculty working in applied mathematics who do modeling & simulation. The goal is to create a space to discuss applied mathematics research in an informal setting: to (a) give current graduate students and postdocs a chance to present their research (or a topic of common interest) and get feedback from the group, (b) learn about other ongoing and future research activities in applied math at the Institute, and (c) discuss important open problems and research challenges. 
The meetings will be (most) Thursdays from 12:30-2:00, in room 1314.
To sign up for the MSG lunch mailing list, please go to this link:!forum/modelingandsimulation. You must then sign into your account that you use for google groups (either your account, or a google account), if you have not done so already. Then, click "Apply for Membership."
Graduate students who wish to get credit for this will be required to attend the working group in both Fall of 2019 and Spring of 2020, and can register for MATH-GA-2830.004 in the fall but will get their grades in spring. Students enrolled in the course will be required to attend regularly and participate in discussions, as well as present at least once during the academic year.
For Spring 2019, we read and presented classic papers in applied math and physics. Our evolving list is here:
