Schlumberger-Tufts Computational and Applied Math Seminar

A primary (though not the only) focus of this seminar series is on mathematical and computational aspects of remote sensing. A partial list of the topics of interest includes: numerical solution of large scale PDEs (a.k.a. forward problems); theory and numerical methods of inverse and ill-posed problems; imaging; related problems in numerical linear algebra, approximation theory, optimization and model reduction.

The seminar meets on average once a month, usually on a Tuesday or Thursday (except where noted!) in the late afternoon unless otherwise indicated. The location alternates between Schlumberger's office in Cambridge, MA and the Tufts Medford Campus, with specific room information announced as talks get closer. The location of each talk is indicated on the schedule below.
