The Department of Mathematics Colloquium Series have wrapped up a successful fall semester. The department hosted five research talks this semester covering a wide range of topics in Mathematics.
The series began in September when the department hosted Dr. Taufiquar Khan from Clemson University. He shared his research on Sparsity Regularization Using Wavelets in Electrical Impedance Tomography. In October, Dr. Tao Lin visited from Virginia Tech University and spoke about Immersed Finiate Element Methods and Some Applications.
November proved to be he busiest month with three talks. The first talk was given by UTC Ph.D. Computational Science – Applied Mathematics student Christopher Corley. He shared his research on The Density of Complex Zeros of Random Sums. Later in the month, the department was happy to host Dr. Rajeev Kumar from the Oak Ridge Laboratory who gave two research talks. The first was on Field Theoretic Methods for Polymers as part of the Colloquium Series. He also gave a talk on Understanding Electrostatic Correlations in Polymers as part of the UTC Department of Mathematics/SimCenter Colloquium Series.
The department looks forward to an active spring semester. Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming talks!
