The Department of Mathematics of the University of Pittsburgh will be hosting a workshop on FreeFEM++ given by Professor Frederic Hecht:

What: An Introduction to Scientific Computing using Free Software FreeFem++

Description of the workshop from Professor Hecht:

“I would like it to be possible to solve digitally, in a user-friendly way, the problems modeled by partial differential equations (PDEs) from physics, engineering, computing graphics and recently from the finance-banking sector. This problem is therefore at the interface between applied mathematics, numerical analysis, computer science and the relevant applications (fluid mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics and stock options in finance).”

Where: Thackery hall Room 427

When: August 22, 2017 (All day) – September 1, 2017 (All day)

Who: Everyone is welcome. However, the current room is not large. It would be helpful to email us (wjl@pitt.edu or Trenchea@pitt.edu) if you plan to attend so we can estimate audience size and adjust if necessary.
