OBJECTIVES

  • Expose 36 graduate students in mathematics, engineering, and statistics to challenging and exciting real-world problems arising in industrial and government laboratory research.
  • Introduce students to the team approach to problem solving.
FORMAT

    In the Workshop, which will be the sixth one to be held at North Carolina State University, the students will be divided into six-member teams to collaborate on "industrial mathematics" problems presented by experienced scientists from industry and government laboratories. These problems are not academic exercises found in classrooms, but rather challenging, real-world problems from industry or applied science which require fresh new insight for their formulation and solution.  Details regarding problems investigated in previous years can be found at the web address listed below.

ORGANIZERS APPLICATION PROCEDURE

    Graduate students in mathematics, applied mathematics, engineering, statistics or operations research can be nominated for this program through a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. In addition, the student is required to send a copy of a recent transcript. The deadline for application is April 15, 2000 and successful applicants will be notified by May 1, 2000. The Workshop will cover all local living expenses and will provide partial support for travel to all U.S. citizens and permanent residents (subject to available funding).  Previous workshops have been funded by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation.

Completed applications or inquiries concerning this Workshop should be submitted to:
