REU- Partial Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems

View this Opportunity's Website 

Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Selected undergraduate students will participate in an 8 week summer REU Site, which is designed to involve undergraduate students in innovative research in nonlinear partial differential equations, optimal control and inverse problems for systems with distributed parameters, and dynamical systems and chaos theory, while utilizing modern tools of mathematical and numerical analysis. Students will have a great opportunity to pursue hands-on, original research on the frontier of modern mathematics. They will be equipped with problem-solving, modeling, computational and rigourous proof skills which allow them to successfully tackle original and meaningful interdisciplinary research problems with high standard mathematical tools.

The REU is sponsored by the US National Science Foundation (award 1359074), and is open to US citizens and permanent residents who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program.
