New techniques for fluid-structure interactions The NSF-Applied Mathematics research project “Control Theory, Qualitative Analysis, and Approximation of Coupled Structure-Flow Interaction Systems” intends to generate novel techniques to analyze well-posedness, develop control … Continue reading A project and a conference: Insight to FSI PDE modeling behavior
Sonya Kovalevsky Mathematics Day took place in Carver Hall on April 9. Around 65 girls from middle schools around central Iowa took part in the event, which was run by volunteer faculty and graduate students. Here they all are on the steps of Beardshear Hall.
Sonia Kovalevsky was a pioneer for women in mathematics and science. Despite her obvious talent for mathematics, Sonia Kovalevsky could not complete her education in Russia. She had to emigrate to Germany because women were not allowed to attend universities in Russia at that time. She was the first woman to obtain a PhD in … Continue reading Sonia Kovalevsky Mathematics Day 2022
