BIGMath Industry Connection Event – Feb 24, 2023 4pm

The Industry Connection Series features interactive panels with mathematical scientists working in industry. The goal is to connect mathematical sciences students directly with industry members who can answer student-generated questions. Students at all levels are welcome and encouraged to attend and ask questions.   The next event is coming soon on Friday, February 24th, 2023, […]

Registration is now open for the Mathematical Problems in Industry 2023 Workshop

Registration is now open a for the 39th Annual Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop, hosted by New Jersey Institute of Technology.  The workshop will take place June 12-16, 2023. You can register through this site

Applications are now being accepted for the CIMS REU in Industrial Mathematics and Statistics 2023

The program is designed to provide a glimpse of the ways that advanced mathematics is used in the real world to solve complex problems. The students work on problems which begin with a real-life problem generated by our industrial sponsors. They work closely with a company representative to define the problem and develop solutions of […]

Registration is open for the 18th Annual Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp (GSMMC)

We are pleased to announce the 18th Annual Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp (GSMMC). The GSMMC will take place June 7-10, 2023 at the University of Delaware in Newark, Delaware, United States. The GSMMC is a workshop designed to teach graduate students a broad range of problem-solving skills, including mathematical modeling and analysis, scientific computation, […]

Mathematical Problems in Industry Workshop, June 13-17, 2022 at WPI

CIMS will be hosting the 38th Annual Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) Workshop on June 13-17, 2022. MPI is a problem solving workshop that attracts leading applied mathematicians and scientists from universities, industry, and national laboratories. During the workshop, engineers and scientists from industry interact with the academic participants on problems of interest to their […]

Mean Field Games Model for Cryptocurrency Mining

Speaker: Max Reppen, from Boston University Time: 04/08/21 ,2-2:50pm Zoom: 992 7853 8762 Abstract: We propose a mean field game model to study the question of how centralization of reward and computational power occur in the Bitcoin-like cryptocurrencies. Miners compete against each other for mining rewards by increasing their computational power. This leads to a novel mean field […]

Biological and ecological models under stochastic perturbation, past dependence and spatial inhomogeneity: Modeling and longtime characterization

Speaker: Nhu N. Nguyen from University of Connecticut Time: 04/22/21, 2-2:50pm Zoom : 992 7853 8762 Abstract: The dynamics of many models in Biology and Ecology such as: epidemic models, tumor-immune models, chemostat models, prey-predator models, competitive models, and among others can be mathematically described. The earliest and simplest mathematical models are given by ordinary differential equations (ODE). Long-standing […]

Graphon mean field systems: large population and long time limits

Speaker: Ruoyu Wu from Iowa State University Time: 03/11/2021, 2pm – 2:50 Zoom: 992 7853 8762 Abstract: We consider heterogeneously interacting diffusive particle systems and their large population limit. The interaction is of mean field type with random weights characterized by an underlying graphon. The limit is given by a graphon particle system consisting of […]

Coalescence estimates for the corner growth model with exponential weights.

Speaker: Xiao Shen (University of Wisconsin Madison) Time: 03/04/2021, 2:00pm -2:50pm Zoom ID: 992 7853 8762 Abstract: We establish estimates for the coalescence time of semi-infinite directed geodesics in the planar corner growth model with i.i.d. exponential weights. There are four estimates: upper and lower bounds on the probabilities of both fast and slow coalescence on the correct spatial scale with exponent 3/2. […]
