Numerical Analysis Research Club

The Numerical Analysis Research Club (NARC) at the University of Washington meets once a week for a combination of seminars, student presentations and research discussions. Anyone interested in numerical analysis or scientific computing is welcome to attend.

The goals of the Numerical Analysis Research Club are to:

  • Provide a forum to discuss recent journal articles and pre-prints on interesting topics in numerical analysis or scientific computing, especially on topics related to our research. Students not yet actively involved in their own research projects can consider leading such discussions as a way to learn about interesting problems and explore some possibilities. Looking through the contents of recent issues of journals in this area may provide ideas for topics, e.g. those listed here.
  • Provide an informal atmosphere for students, postdocs, and faculty to practice talking about their research, get feedback and suggestions, and keep others informed about what they are doing.
  • Provide a forum for researchers from around campus or elsewhere to present interesting computational results or get advice on the algorithms they are using.

You are encouraged to subscribe to NA-Digest for weekly news on numerical analysis.
Some journals containing papers suitable for discussion.
UWNARC mailing list: Sign up here for email or to view recent discussions.
