$2.3 million NSF grant awarded for SMU Research Training Group

Dedman College News Originally Posted: March 22, 2019 SMU Department of Mathematics builds expert teams that foster interdisciplinary research and strengthen mathematical career interest. The SMU Department of Mathematics was awarded a $2.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to build the Southern Methodist University Research Training Group (SMU-RTG)—a collection of interdisciplinary teams made up of mathematicians, engineers, chemists, and neuroscientists that collaborate with junior scholars and provide training in modeling and computation. The Department of Mathematics will utilize its core strengths in modeling and scientific computing and its ongoing success in placing graduates in a range of careers as they build SMU-RTG over the next five years. “The SMU-RTG program supports efforts to improve research training by involving undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, [...]

Animations that are true to life

UC Merced UC Merced News highlighted Department of Mathematics visiting assistant professor, Vu Thai Luan's research collaboration. Professor Luan is developing computational tools that will allow animators to produce the next generation of true-to-life simulations. Imagine going to see the latest Pixar movie. You’re sitting in the theater enjoying the film, when you begin to notice the astounding level of detail in the animation. On screen, water is rippling and leaves are flittering with an almost uncanny realism. It’s art imitating life with incredible verisimilitude, and it makes you wonder how the animators are able to pull off such lifelike effects. The answer, at least in part, lies in mathematics. With support from the National Science Foundation, UC Merced professor Mayya Tokman and her collaborators — professor Dominik Michels of [...]
