Tuesday, December 5, 2006 15:00-16:00,
Speaker Bio: Brad Alpert is a staff member of NIST's Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division, which he joined fifteen years ago. He received BS and MS degrees in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Chicago, respectively. He received a PhD in Computer Science from Yale University in 1990. He has held positions as a Hans Lewy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, and more recently as a Visiting Researcher at Courant Institute in New York. His research interests include the numerical solution of integral equations, high-order quadratures, the fast multipole method, wavelets, special functions, computational electromagnetics, and inverse scattering. He is currently an Associate Editor of the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing and received the Arthur S. Flemming award in 2006.
