Week of REUs, Day III

MAXIMA Summer REU in Interdisciplinary Mathematics

The Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) and the Macalester College Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science announce a six-week (June 10 – July 19, 2013) REU in applied mathematics. The program will be hosted at the IMA facilities at the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota (UMN).

Students will work on open research problems posed by UMN researchers in computer science and engineering. Research teams will be advised by Macalester and University of St. Thomas faculty. Students will also collaborate with IMA postdoctoral fellows. Topics for summer 2013 are drawn from compressed sensing, image recognition, and robotics. The various projects employ techniques from mathematics, statistics, and computer science.

The online application is due February 22, 2013. This program is sponsored by a three-year NSF grant and by the IMA. Please direct any questions to reu@ima.umn.edu.
