Research Training in Mathematical Modeling, Analysis and Computation

Motor circuit used in model for Parkinson's disease.


This is an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates that integrates modeling, analysis, and computations with contemporary experimental research.  It is centered on large multi-scale nonlinear systems and the mathematical and numerical methods needed to analyze them.  Essential components of this effort are the introduction of emerging research methods into the curriculum and a much closer interaction with researchers outside mathematics.  This enriches the educational and professional experiences of our students and postdocs, with the result that they are strong researchers who are able to work on emerging real-world problems in science and engineering.
