Mathematical Modeling in Industry - A Workshop for Graduate Students
July 22 to July 31, 1998

Fadil Santosa and Fernando Reitichl, Organizers

Mathematical Modeling in Industry was a 10-day workshop designed to provide graduate students and qualified advanced undergraduates with first handexperience in industrial research.

Format

Students worked in teams of up to 6 students under the guidance of a tutor from industry. The tutor helped to guide the students in the modeling process,analysis and computational work associated with a real-world industrial problem. Each team made a public oral presentation and submitted a written report at the end of the 10-day period.

Projects and Industry Mentors

The following industry scientists participated as mentors:
