The Department of Mathematical Sciences hosts several research and professional development seminars.  The following groups host seminars:

  • Center for Data Analysis and Statistics (CDAS)
    • POC:  MAJ Chris Collins and LTC Krista Watts
    • Purpose: Promote the development of expertise in applying statistical methods to applied problems.
    • Meetings:  See the schedule below.


  • Center for Faculty Development (CFD)
    • POC:  MAJ Mat Fukuzawa
    • Purpose: Promote the development of expertise in pedagogical practice.
    • Meetings:  See the schedule below.


  • Differential Equations Seminar (DES)
    • POC: Fr. Gabe Costa
    • Purpose: Create a community of interest around research related to and the use of differential equations.
    • Meetings:  See the schedule below.


  • Math of Operations Research (Math of OR)
    • POC:  Dr. Bill Pulleyblank and COL Mike Yankovich
    • Purpose:  Provide an outlet for current faculty members to share their on-going research, particularly the application of operations research methods, to applied problems.
    • Meetings:  See the schedule below.


  • Math Theory Seminar (MTAS)
    • POC: Dr. Ivan Dungan
    • Purpose:  Create a community of interest around research in theoretical mathematics.
    • Meetings:  Most Wednesdays at either 2:00 PM or 3:00 PM.  (Contact Dr. Dungan for details.)


  • Minorities in Mathematics Speaker Series (MIMSS) 
    • POC: Dr. Sam Ivy
    • Purpose:  Provide a forum to host guest lectures featuring the achievements and contributions of minorities in the mathematical sciences and related fields.
    • Meetings:  See schedule below.  (Contact Dr. Ivy for more information.)


  • Network Science Center (NSC)
    • POC:  LTC Jon Roginski, Dr. Chris Arney, and Dr. Bill Pulleyblank
    • Purpose: Create a community of interest around the study of network representations of physical, biological, and social phenomena leading to predictive models.
    • Meetings:  Brown Bag seminars every other Wednesday from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.  (Contact LTC Roginski for dates, topics, and location.)


This table lists the seminars hosted by CDAS, CFD, and Math of OR.  All of these seminars take place on Thursday afternoons from 14:00 to 14:55.  Others listed are for informational purpose.
