Purpose

The purpose of this organization is to increase students' awareness and knowledge of the interdisciplinary nature of applied mathematics in academia as well as industry by promoting student involvement in workshops and conferences as well as providing students with a view into the wide range of fields in which a mathematician can not only work but also make great contributions.

    Upcoming Applied Math Seminar:

    Ken Ho from Stanford University will be giving a talk on Thursday March 6th, 3:00 pm in Weber 223.
    Title:

    Hierarchical interpolative factorization
    Abstract:

    Fast algorithms for elliptic PDEs are central to modern scientific computing. In this talk, we consider the efficient factorization of matrices associated with elliptic problems in both integral and differential form. Standard hierarchical schemes based on low-rank compression are highly effective in 1D but have limited utility in 2D and 3D due to rank growth. Here, we combat this with explicit dimensional reductions via geometric reclustering and additional compression. The resulting ranks are much better behaved, yielding essentially linear costs to construct, apply, and invert the factorization. Our method is fully adaptive and can handle both boundary and volume problems. This is joint work with Lexing Ying.
