COVID-19 update: Seminars will take place remotely via zoom in the Fall of 2020, Thursdays 12:30-1:30pm starting September 10th. A link to the zoom meeting will be sent by email before each talk. This Fall 2020 we will focus a bit more on events that increase interactions among the group, and help us feel connected and continue our goal of integrating all levels of research in modeling and simulation from undergrad to faculty.
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, via zoom.
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 can register for a 1.5 credit course MATH-GA.2420-001 each semester. 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:
