Complete List of IMA PI Graduate Students Programs

During July 1-26, 2002 the University of Kentucky Center for Computational Sciences will be the host of the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications' (IMA) summer graduate program in mathematics.  The course will concentrate on scientific computing with an emphasis on applications including a week on biomathematical computing.  An additional feature will be a two day workshop on how to use the Department of Energy's software for parallel computers at the end of week 3.

This program is open to graduate students from IMA Participating Institutions. Students are nominated by their department head. Participating institution department heads nominate graduate students from their institution by an e-mail to visit@ima.umn.edu with the students' names and e-mail addresses. Places are guaranteed for two graduate students from each participating institution, with additional students accommodated as space allows. Note that registration and selections of qualified students are over.

Students who have been nominated can fill out the online application form.

    The university also has a 224 processor HP Superdome cluster. Each processor is rated at about 3 gigaflops (peak) and has 2 gigabytes of main memory. There are three 64 processor and one 32 processor SMP's with five terabytes of attached disk storage. In addition, there are workstations and PC's.  Students should bring a laptop computer if possible.

    There are apartments, cafeterias, restaurants, bookstores, libraries on or near campus. Lexington is a city of 275,000 people and has many other facilities. Its airport is served by 6 major airlines. Cincinnati is about 75 miles from campus.

    Temporary campus id's will be arranged so that access to university facilities is assured.
