Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing Seminar

The seminar covers a wide range of topics in numerical analysis and scientific computing. The seminar is run by Michael Overton.

The seminar normally meets on Fridays at 10:00 a.m. in room 1302 of Warren Weaver Hall, 251 Mercer Street, New York, NY 10012. For various reasons, the first seminar of the Fall 2006 semester is currently scheduled for Oct 13.
