The 6th annual Davis SIAM Student Research Conference brings together graduate and undergraduate students in applied mathematics and related fields. The conference offers an opportunity for students to network with others in their field and to be exposed to new topics. All students are invited to attend.

The Davis SIAM Student Research Conference has been hosted by the SIAM Student Chapter at UC Davis since May 2008 and has been supported in the past by funds provided by SIAM, NSF Vigre RFG, Combined Applied Math and PDEs Seminar, UC Davis Mathematics Galois Group and UCD GSA.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Michael Minion Dr. Michael Minion is a Consulting Professor at Stanford University and a staff member of the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. He recieved his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from UC Berkeley. After a post-doctoral at the Courant Insitute at NYU, he was a member of the Department of Mathematics at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Dr. Minion's research speciality is in scientific computing with an emphasis on novel algorithms for problems in fluid dynamics.


Parallelization in Time for ODEs and PDEs


This talk will provide an overview of past and present developments in the parallelization of numerical methods for ordinary and partial differential equations in the temporal direction. I will highlight some recent efforts on combining spatial and temporal parallelism on massively parallel systems using the parallel full approximation scheme in space and time (PFASST). I will also discuss some progress on applying these ideas to molecular dynamics simulations.
