Our SIAM-ISU Student Chapter
Current SIAM-ISU Chapter Officers
The objectives of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) are:
- Further the application of mathematics to industry and science;
- Promote basic research in mathematics leading to new methods and techniques useful to industry and science;
- Provide media for the exchange of information and ideas between mathematicians and other technical and scientific personnel.
The objectives of the SIAM-ISU Student Chapter are
- Provide students with a means for professional development by its programs and its relationships with other Student Chapters and with the National Society;
- Contribute toward the development of applied mathematics at the Iowa State University through activities in which student members and faculty may participate;
- Serve as an interdisciplinary focal point within the University community for the interchange of information in the area of applied mathematics.
