Special Program in Applied Mathematics and Applied Mechanics

In the history, mathematics has been most inspired by the development of a variety of branches in mechanics such as dynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, eletromagnetics as well modern mechanics. Nowadays, applied mechanics covers a wide range of applications in science and engineering, probing into the small such as the activity of electrons in solids, motion of electrolyte in nano-fluidics, functions of human cells and organisms, encompassing the daily-life scales in various engineering disciplines such as civil engineering, mechanical, chemical, materials and so on, extending to the large such as geophysical flows in ocean and atmosphere and beyond. The cross-links between mechanics and mathematics largely shape the outlook of modern science and technology. The faculty and students who are interested in applying mathematics to any field of interest are encouraged to participate in this seminar series by giving talks, discussing questions and/or sharing their knowledge and experience.
