ICES Professor Thomas J. R. Hughes gave two distinguished lectures as part of the Householder Seminar Series at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in March.
The Householder Seminar Series is sponsored jointly by the Computational and Applied Mathematics Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The purpose of the seminar is to have distinguished scientists present their research on various topics in computational and applied mathematics. The series began in 2014 and is held twice per year, alternating each time between the two institutions. Read more.Posted: March 15, 2016
ICES Professor Irene Gamba organized the Spring 2016 Ki-Net workshop on advances in kinetic and fluid dynamics transport.
