ICM Activities


ICM Activities

  • (8 Aug 2010) Prof. Morley Davidson of the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Kent State University says--- I'm at MIT right now watching the finals of the Rubik's Cube National Championships -- the defending champ is up there doing his thing (10 second solves!!). Just before the finals started, I had the pleasure of personally announcing this result to a fairly packed auditorium on behalf of the research team I've been working with...it's now about a week old, and the paper is almost ready...

  • Paul Wang, Dean Zeller and Su Wei are actively involved in updating the MathPASS system that the Mathematics Department uses for remedial mathematics education classes. The updated MathPASS will use MathML for displaying formulas and computer algebra systems for answer checking, among other new features.

  • Su Wei is a scholar from Lanzhou University, supported by a grant from the People's Republic of China, to visit ICM starting late August 2007 for a period of one to two years. Su Wei will be taking some classes and also participate in the WME research group.

  • Conference: Conference on the Occasion of Richard Varga's 80th Birthday, October 17-18, 2008, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Kent State University

  • ETNA: 2008 Special Volume 31 - Computational Methods with Applications, held in Harrachov, Czech Republic, during the week of August 19-25, 2007. The conference was in fact third in a row, following the tradition of the meetings which took place in 1997 and 2002 in Milovy, Czech Republic. The papers represent a good sample of the breadth of the field covered by the conference participants; each article underwent the standard refereeing process of ETNA.

  • ETNA: 2007 Special Volume 29 - GAMM-SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra held at the University of Düsseldorf, Germany, on 24-27 July 2006. SIAM's and GAMM's very active special interest groups on linear algebra organized the Düsseldorf conference as a continuation of SIAM's successful triannual conference series on Applied Linear Algebra.

  • Mathematics for Real-life Problems a new colloquium series chaired by Prof. Olaf Stackelberg will begin Fall 2005.

  • Web-based Mathematics Education, in cooperation with Prof. Michael Mikusa (Education School, Kent State), Kimpton middle school mathematics teachers Mrs. Grace Dorene Ellis and Mrs. Kim Yoak, and others from US and around the world, on-going since January 2004.

  • ETNA: Following the Flows of Numerical Analysis, Conference May 29-31, 2003

  • IAMC Workshops:
    Internet Accessible Mathematical Computation workshops, 1999, 2001, 2002, and 2003 (with online proceedings). The IAMC 2003 Workshop will take place Thursday 7 August 2003 Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA USA

  • IAMC Live Demos:
    IAMC Demos

  • Conference:
    MATHEMATICAL JOURNEY THROUGH ANALYSIS, MATRIX THEORY AND SCIENTIFIC COMPUTATION: --- a conference on the occasion of Richard S. Varga's 70th birthday

  • ETNA:
    ICM publishes Electronic Transactions on Numerical Analysis, a Web-based journal

  • SymbolicNet:
    ICM maintains the SymbolicNet web site, a starting point for information retrieval for the Symbolic Mathematical Computation area

  • Consulting and Training for Industry:
    ICM offers a variety of custom training courses for industry. The courses, mostly in the area of computer science, can be offered either on-site or on-campus. Consulting by ICM faculty on various topics of interest can also be arranged on a case-by-case basis. Contact icm@math.kent.edu for more information and to make arrangements.

  • Internships and Industrial Out-Reach:
    ICM facilitates internships and other cooperations with industry, locally and nationally (Under construction)
