Math Encounters:
Mega-Models: the math behind computer simulations"

featuring Cristina Draghicescu

Wednesday, August 10 at 4:00 pm ET (New York)

(in person)

What is the weather forecast for next week?  Can we predict turbulence and should we worry about it during flights?  How do galaxies evolve?  We can describe and understand complex physical phenomena by modeling such systems as collections of "particles," where particles can be anything from atoms and molecules to stars and galaxies.  But even the fastest computers cannot directly compute all the interactions when the number of particles is very large.  Math to the rescue!  Join mathematician Cristina Draghicescu as she describes how mathematical methods can tame these seemingly impossible computations.

Special introduction by Susanne Brenner, Boyd Professor of Mathematics at Louisiana State University and current President of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).
