The Center for Modeling, Optimization and Computational Analysis (MOCA) kicks off in January, 2020. MOCA is a School of Science Center housed in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Its principal mission is to promote interdisciplinary research among faculty in math and other departments at Rensselaer and elsewhere. During the Spring semester, the Center will host a series of Brown Bag seminars on research topics of current interest. The seminar schedule will be posted soon.
