Speaker: Raphael Stuhlmeier, University of Plymouth Date: December 6, 2018 Title: Instability and evolution of inhomogeneous, broad-banded seas Abstract: Nonlinear interaction, along with wind input and dissipation, is one of the three drivers of wave evolution at sea, and is included in every modern wave-forecast model. The mechanism behind the nonlinear interaction terms in such models is based on the kinetic equation for... Read more

Speaker: Deniz Bilman, University of Michigan Date: November 8, 2018 Title: A robust inverse scattering transform and extreme superposition of rogue waves Abstract: We propose a modification of the standard inverse scattering transform for the focusing nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation (also other equations by natural generalization) formulated with nonzero boundary conditions at infinity. The purpose is to deal with... Read more

Speaker: Zhijun Qiao, UT Rio Grande Valley Date: January 24, 2019 Title: Integrable systems with peakon and cuspon solutions Abstract: In my talk, I will introduce integrable peakon and cuspon equations and present a basic approach how to get peakon solutions. Those equations include the well-known Camassa-Holm (CH), the Degasperis-Procesi (DP), and other new peakon equations with M/W-shape solutions. I take the CH case... Read more

By Prof. K.K. Tung, Applied Mathematics During the Decadal Program Review conducted this April, the Department posed the following question to the Program Review Committee: Should the Department establish an undergraduate major in applied mathematics?  This may seem like a strange question, as almost every applied mathematics department in the US has its own undergraduate major. (There are some exceptions but these are the non-departmental units such as joint programs among several... Read more

By Felix Ye, Applied Mathematics PhD graduate I cannot believe my PhD study is over. I had been in Seattle for so long that I almost don’t remember which year I started. I participated in so many others’ graduation ceremonies and now, finally, it was my turn. My memory of classes, lectures, and life in Guggenheim and Lewis Hall are still vivid. One particular memory was watching the precious winter sunsets from the window of the big PhD office in Guggenheim. I feel it was like... Read more

By Jack Simonson, CFRM MS Graduate When I started the Computational Finance and Risk Management (CFRM) program I truly had little-to-no idea of what I would wind up doing once I graduated. I had vague notions of what I might do and areas of study that interested me, but what company or job description I wanted to wind up with was still a mystery. I imagine that I wasn’t the only one who felt this way when entering the program, but hopefully what I can say here will help assuage some of... Read more

By Rachel Reichert, Applied Mathematics Administrator  I am very excited to have joined the Department of Applied Mathematics. I had heard that this department had dedicated competent staff and exceptionally wonderful faculty and I can honestly say my expectations have been far exceeded.  Beginning with my training from Keshanie Dissanayake (retired administrator) who did an exceptional job in providing a clear hand-off in duties and responsibilities and continuing with the excellent...
