The Mathematics of Climate Seminar will meet every Tuesday (staring September 3) at 11:15 in 305 Lind Hall. The first few lectures will be an introduction to the subject. The level of mathematical sophistication will gradually increase, until we are examining current research by the middle of the semester.
Climate modeling is a rapidly growing area. The mathematics involved includes ordinary and partial differential equations, dynamical systems, stochastic processes, statistics, and numerical methods. Even if you have little or no interest in climate, you might be interested to see some applications of the mathematics.
The first lecture will be "The Scientific Case for Anthropogenic Warming," by Richard McGehee.
The atmosphere is informal, and we usually continue the discussions over lunch after the seminar.
Everyone is invited.
