In our second general meeting we would like to share advice on choosing classes for next semester and present our latest plans for PME. We would also like to give you the opportunity to voice your opinion on the proposed events and changes.
This event is open to everyone. Feel free to share this announcement with others. Donuts will be provided!
When: Friday, March 8, 2:10PM-2:25PM.
Where: PGH 232
At this event, we will give out certificates, have you sign the roll book, and induct the new PME members. The ceremony is informal with regards to attire, but keep in mind we will take a photo of all new members at the ceremony.
This event is open to everyone and is scheduled as an integral part of the Fall 2019 Undergrate Meet and Greet (see below).
Department of Mathematics Meet & Greet and Pi Day Celebration (Flyer)
When: Friday, March 8, 1:00PM-4:00PM.
Where: PGH 232
This event is for all Undergraduate Math Majors, including Mathematical Biology, Math Graduate students, Departmental Faculty and Staff. The purpose of this social is to create a pleasant and comfortable environment among faculty and students.
This year the Meet and Greet will be held in conjunction with the Pi Day Celebration event, hosted by our UH SIAM and UH AMS organizations.
Undergraduate Colloquium (Organized by MENTOR)
When: Thursday, March 7, 5:30PM.
Where: AH 108
Speaker: Mircea Ionescu, OneSubsea (a Schlumberger company)
Title: Mathematics for all Markets
The use of mathematical models in various fields such as
engineering applications, financial instruments and contracts, risk
and decision making, insurance, optimization and others has seen a
massive proliferation since the advancement of numerical methods
and distributed computing power. Accurately modeling a highly
complex and nonlinear process or event is a difficult task that
requires good judgment in keeping a healthy balance between
simplifications and approximations needed to solve the model and
capturing the essential response/behavior of the said process or
event. The practitioner of mathematical modeling is constantly
faced with this task of choosing which aspects of the process are
most important and which can be neglected in order to arrive at a
solution that best describes the problem to be solved and to
interpret and validate the model results.
This talk will provide some examples of practical engineering
problems encountered when designing oil and gas subsea equipment in
which mathematical modeling was extensively applied to verify and
validate the operational limits of the subsea equipment. Examples
of mathematical models from other science fields such as biomedical
engineering, finance, and gaming theory will also be briefly
presented. Work opportunities in the industry/academia will be
discussed and a list of suggested readings that touch on the
subject of mathematical modeling will be provided.
When: Tuesday, February 26, 5:30PM-6:30PM.
Where: PGH 646
We will go over the basics of LaTeX, assuming no prior knowledge. You will learn how to create documents, use pre-built packages, and create professional-looking mathematical documents. Please join us if you don't have much prior experience with LaTeX, or just want to get a better understanding of how it works.
When: Monday, 02/11/19, 6:00PM-8:30PM.
Where: The Nook
We are hosting our first social event for this semester. You can stay as early or as late as you want. There will be board games, but feel free to bring your own. You are always welcome to bring a friend along with you.
With this meeting we would like to initiate the spring semester 2019. With this meeting we would like to give students that are considering joining PME an opportunity to learn more about us and our activities. We will discuss the standards and significance of membership in Pi Mu Epsilon. This meeting should provide the necessary information to initiates, looking to become active this semester. We will also provide donuts.
This event is open to everyone. Feel free to share this announcement with others.
More events will be posted here as they are announced.
meantime, feel free to look at our page of past events
or to contact us if you have a suggestion for an
event or would like to help organize an event.
