Nation’s electric grid — a complex mathematical system — is dramatically changing

SMU Research Originally Posted: April 5, 2017 Deregulation of the U.S. electric markets, the emergence of renewable sources of energy and new technologies means there are large risks to the grid. Our nation’s electric grid is changing dramatically due to deregulation of electric markets, the introduction of renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power, and the emergence of new technologies such as the smart grid and electric cars, according to Barry Lee, an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics at Southern Methodist University, Dallas. “Such changes can lead to large risks in the grid, which are not very well understood,” said Lee, whose research addresses the issue. The electric power grid is a complex mathematical system. In fact, some components of [...]

#MustangsGiveBack is TODAY! Support Dedman College!

What will you support at SMU? Make a gift on March 7, 2017, and be a part of Mustangs Give Back, our annual one-day giving challenge. Here are some of the Dedman College projects on the #MustangsGiveBack list: Bring International Film Festival to Campus: SMU's spring international film festival brings the best of foreign cinema to campus. Films from the Arab world, Africa, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, and many other countries and regions are screened at no cost to students or the general public. This helps bring international cinema to a city, whose existing film venues and festivals tend to exclude such films. Dollar Goal:  $5,000 Integrating History and Technology through training on 3D scanner and printer: Students interact with 3D scanned models in real time, deepening their [...]

Request for Proposals for Undergraduate Mayer Fellows, 2017-2018

Each academic year, DCII sponsors six undergraduate Mayer Undergraduate Research Fellows. These students have a double major or a major and minor(s), and at least one of these must be in Dedman College. With two faculty mentors, each Mayer Fellow conducts a research project that combines and integrates the perspectives of his/her major(s)/minor(s). Mayer Fellows have access to funds to use for research travel or for other expenses related to their research project. See website for details.
