Jeroen Tromp, Anatoly Spitkovsky, Curt Hillegas: Applications of High Performance Computing at Princ
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Two Princeton faculty describe their research uses of Princeton's high performance computing facilities. Professor Anatoly Spitkovsky will discuss "Simulations of Astrophysical Shocks. He will talk about the first-principles plasma simulations of shock waves in astrophysics, addressing a very simple-sounding problem --- what happens when two clouds of ionized gas collide in space? Professor Jeroen Tromp will talk about "Simulating the Big One, a large-scale 3D nu
Betty Leydon, Emily Carter, Jennifer Rexford, Olga Troyanskaya: Women in Research Computing - March
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Princeton University's Vice President for Information Technology and CIO, Betty Leydon, moderates a panel of three "women in research computing." The panelists, Emily Carter (Arthur W. Marks '19 Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Applied and Computational Mathematics), Olga Troyanskaya (Assistant Professor of Computer Science and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics), and Jennifer Rexford (Professor of Computer Science), summarize th
In Pursuit of the Salesman: Mathematics at the Limit of Computation - December 16, 2009
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: The traveling salesman problem, or TSP for short, is easy to state: given a number of cities along with the cost of travel between each pair of them, find the cheapest way to visit them all and return to your starting point. Easy to state, but difficult to solve! Despite decades of research by top applied mathematicians around the world, in general it is not known how to significantly improve upon simple brute-force checking. It is a real possibility that there may n
Integrating Mathematics, Science and Language
This bilingual curriculum and resources guide and is designed to help elementary school teachers organize instruction to increase achievement of Hispanic primary-grade children whose first language is not English. The guide offers a curriculum plan, instructional strategies and activities, suggested teacher and student materials, and assessment procedures. Because language development is a fundamental co-requisite for learning mathematics and science concepts, processes and skills, the lessons i

6.055J The Art of Approximation in Science and Engineering (MIT)
This course teaches simple reasoning techniques for complex phenomena: divide and conquer, dimensional analysis, extreme cases, continuity, scaling, successive approximation, balancing, cheap calculus, and symmetry. Applications are drawn from the physical and biological sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Examples include bird and machine flight, neuron biophysics, weather, prime numbers, and animal locomotion. Emphasis is on low-cost experiments to test ideas and on fostering curiosity abo
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a uniform
