Optimal Control and Applications to Biology
Cancer Dynamics Description continued
This activity serves as an opportunity to highlight current research topics and real-world applications in applied mathematics. Students exposed to the mini-courses will learn mathematical tools used to efficiently solve real world problems. Specifically, the intention is to highlight the applications of mathematics in other disciplines as well as in industry in an effort to illustrate mathematics as a useful and necessary tool as well as a lucrative career option.
Courses aim to address both theoretical aspects as well as real world applications. The courses will be complemented by additional computer lab sessions where students will solve relevant problems and be given an opportunity to run simulations and learn computational skills. In addition, students will be provided with mentoring regarding jobs in industry as well as opportunities for advanced studies in mathematics.
