Agenda:

8:30-9:00 Registration and Welcome (continental breakfast provided)

9:00-10:00 Prof. Jeffrey Connors, University of Connecticut Department of Mathematics

Title: Numerical differentiation and integration

Abstract: We will discuss the numerical treatment of derivative and integral operations. For scientific applications these are often tied to solving large systems of equations or can lead to expensive loops in codes. It is important to understand how to approximate both types of operators to achieve sufficient accuracy with limited resources (time and memory). Derivations of various methods and theoretical analyses of accuracy are covered, with a focus on developing intuition to choose (or to develop) algorithms for practical computing. Examples will be provided to illustrate the theory.

10:00-11:00 Prof. Lan-Hsuan Huang, University of Connecticut Department of Mathematics

Title: The shape of black holes

Abstract: Black holes have been featured in movies and science fictions as some mysterious objects in our universe, but this concept arises naturally in general relativity to describe a place in space with strong gravitation. We will present the mathematical models for black holes and discuss the Hawking black hole topology theorem that a black hole must be spherical.

11:00-12:00 Discussion about program information with ECE Mathematics Faculty Coordinator, David Gross

12:00-12:30 Lunch (provided) and Final Comments
