UW-Eau Claire Math Department to Hold Summer Math Workshop

RELEASED: June 12, 2006

EAU CLAIRE — The department of mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will hold its 2006 summer mathematics workshop, "Inverse Problems and Applications," June 19-20.

Because inverse problems have many applications in sciences and engineering, the workshop will be of interest to faculty members and students from across the sciences, including mathematics, physics, biology, computer science and chemistry, as well as to engineering professionals from area industries, said Dr. Mohamed Elgindi, professor of mathematics and one of the event's organizers.

Presenters at the workshop will include faculty members with backgrounds in mathematics, computer engineering, physics and statistics from the University of Central Florida, the University of Minnesota, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Barron County and UW-Madison. Five UW-Eau Claire students also will present their summer mathematics research projects. All lectures will take place in Room 309 of Hibbard Humanities Hall.

  • What inverse problems are and what everyone should know about them
  • Inverse problems in engineering, applied sciences, technology and medicine
  • Synopsis of mathematical and numerical methods for inverse and ill-posed problems

For a complete list of presenters and a schedule of presentations and abstracts, visit the mathematics department Web site.

The mathematics workshop is funded by the provost's office at UW-Eau Claire, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, and the department of mathematics.
