SIAM Southeastern Atlantic Section Conference

September 18-19, 2021

Mini-symposium (MS)

MS15: Mathematical Modeling, Analysis and Applications

Organizers: Thomas Hagen, University of Memphis

Abstract: This mini-symposium will feature diverse presentations which explore novel developments in mathematical modeling of continuum mechanical processes and introduce significant techniques for the analytical and computational prediction of their behavior. It will bring together junior mathematicians with more senior researchers and lead to a fruitful exchange of new ideas and objectives.
