Students wanting to add a math major or switch to a math major can do so between February 15 and March 31, during First Summer Session, or between October 1 and the day before Thanksgiving break.
The 2015 Fifth Annual SIAM Mid-Atlantic Regional Mathematical Student Conference and Industrial Days is March 20-21 at George Mason University. It is hosted by the SIAM student chapters of George Mason University, Virginia Tech, and Shippensburg University.
Featured ResearchTraian Iliescu - Much of my current research is on gravity currents, cold masses of water protruding into warm ones. The mixing between the cold and warm water takes place through the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. Gravity currents are believed to have a significant role in general ocean circulation models. However, their numerical simulation is very challenging due to the large (geophysical scale) parameters involved. My main interest in the numerical investigation of gravity currents is the ability of LES to perform at parameters prohibitive for a Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) approach.
