M. Y. Hussaini
Florida State University (FSU) has long been at the forefront in the development, analysis and application of computational methods. The Applied Mathematics Program (now Computational and Applied Mathematics) of the Mathematics department was created in the 1960's as support for the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute. The Supercomputer Computations Research Institute (SCRI) was created in the 1980's to foster interdisciplinary research using supercomputers. Today, computational research is conducted in several departments across the University.
The purpose of the Workshop on Advances in Computational Mathematics and Engineering is to provide a forum for FSU faculty and student research, to promote information exchange and collaboration across department and college boundaries, and to highlight the contributions of research conducted at FSU to computational mathematics and engineering.
The workshop covers topics of interest to the faculty at FSU, including, but not limited to, applications of mathematics in fluid dynamics, engineering, oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, aeroacoustics, computational geometry and image processing. FSU faculty will be invited to present their current research. Students will participate through poster presentations, with prizes given to the top three posters as judged by the plenary speakers.
Several invited plenary speakers from outside FSU will highlight the national and international scene in computation and FSU's place in it. These presentations are expected to recognize and review the contributions of Professor Yousuff Hussaini since joining FSU, which include important research in aeroacoustics, electromagnetics, enviromental engineering, nanotechnology networks, and uncertainty quantification; and his influence on the evolution of computational mathematics and engineering at FSU by advocating interdisciplinary computational education and research that include a strong combination of fundamental mathematics, algorithms, computing and the sciences, and a faculty that reflects such a combination.
