On August 25 – September 8, 2019, KAUST will host eligible international BS/BSc and MS students for an Applied Mathematics workshop. You will be exposed to several aspects of Applied Mathematics, including homogenization, numerics for partial differential equations and mean field games. You will also improve on a range of Scientific Research Skills used in this academic sphere. The course includes lectures and lab work and students on the program will attempt to produce a collaborative research paper.?
Mathematical concepts and techniques are used in virtually all fields of science and engineering. Mathematics can enable exciting new discoveries and techniques. This school will expose the participating students to the frontiers of Applied Mathematics Research at KAUST.
A research paper previously published by student interns on this course can be found on-line here: https://msp.org/involve/2017/10-3/p07.xhtml
The four main topics of research that include tutorials are:
Mean Field Games
Numerics for PDEs
Scientific Research Skills
The 2019 Applied Mathematics Workshop is an opportunity for exceptionally qualified international baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate students to conduct research with faculty mentors.
Students who have completed a minimum of their 3rd-year of baccalaureate studies OR completed their baccalaureate (Bachelor’s degree) OR be pursuing a post- baccalaureate (Master’s degree).
