ACMD Staff*

ACMD runs a colloquium series on topics relevant to applied and computational mathematics. Speakers in the series are from the ACMD Staff and invited external speakers. The colloquia provide staff members with the opportunity to disseminate results of their research projects, and to keep up to date on external research activities that are relevant to NIST needs. The talks are open to all interested parties. Recent speakers in the series include:
