Jeffrey Larson - Argonne National Laboratory
Oct 29, 2018 - 12:45pm to 1:45pm
Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific Computation (CISC) - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 106
The increase in computational resources in the past decades has resulted in computationally expensive numerical simulations appearing in nearly all scientific domains. Often times, domain scientists wish to identify inputs to the simulation that produce some form of optimal behavior. In this talk,... read more
Yizhi Zhang - Department of Applied Mathematics, Illinois Institute of Technology
Oct 25, 2018 - 3:15pm to 4:30pm
Department of Applied Mathematics - Seminar - Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 103
This talk investigates how to solve univariate integration problems using numerical methods, including the trapezoidal rule and Simpson's rule. Most existing guaranteed algorithms are not adaptive and require too much a priori information. Most existing adaptive algorithms do not have a valid... read more
Anita Nikolich - Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure, National Science Foundation
Oct 25, 2018 - 12:15pm to 1:15pm
Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific Computation (CISC) - Seminar - Robert A. Pritzker Science Center, Room 240
Scientific discovery has become more interdisciplinary and collaborative, necessitating cooperation within and between universities and partner organizations. The priorities of Federal funding agencies and the rationale behind grant decision-making is sometimes confusing or mysterious. I'll offer... read more
