On Monday 28th November, we are holding the inaugural meeting of the Strathclyde SIAM Student Chapter. This meeting will be held from 1500–1715 in LT908 and consist of three 20 minute talks given by Prof. Mark Ainsworth, Prof. Ernesto Estrada and Dr. Tony Mulholland, as well as a one hour plenary lecture by Prof. David Silvester (University of Manchester). Prof. Silvester’s talk will be entitled “PDEs and Numerical Linear Algebra: a view from the fence”. The aims of this meeting are to encourage discussion between members of staff and students, both at postgraduate and undergraduate level, and to highlight the key role mathematics has in both academia and industry. The meeting will include a coffee break and be followed by a cheese and wine reception. For further details please see the poster for the event.
All postgraduate students and senior undergraduates (3rd, 4th and 5th year) are welcome to become members of the Chapter. Postgraduate members are eligible to hold a position as an officer of the Chapter, with all members eligible to vote in elections. Membership of the Chapter also comes with the benefit of free student membership to SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), with members receiving subscription to SIAM News, discounts on SIAM books and journals, and the eligibility to hold office and serve on SIAM committees, as well as many other benefits.
In the coming years we hope to make the Strathclyde Chapter a vibrant and lively environment for the discussion and development of mathematics, not only for fellow mathematicians but for collaborators in other disciplines. We hope you can come along on Monday 28th November to join us in our first steps along this journey.
