Mathematics, Analysis and Control in
Chemical Physics and Related Systems
Nevada, Las Vegas
December 14-17, 2010
Zhonghai Ding, University of Nevada, Las
Matthew Coleman, Fairfield University
This conference studies
contemporary topics in molecular quantum mechanics, computation,
nonlinear analysis and control theory, with special emphasis on molecular
simulation and control.
The objective is to bring together leading experts from a broad spectrum of
areas, in order to identify mathematical and numerical challenges in
molecular simulation and control, discuss new ideas and
methods to address such challenges in consonance with emerging
technologies, and develop
collaborative multidisciplinary research opportunities between
mathematicians, chemists and physicists.
The first day of the Conference,
December 14, 2010, has been designated as a Tutorial Day to
facilitate the general participants with the understanding of PDEs,
control, and elementary quantum
mechanics in preparation for the more special topics offered by the major
speakers to follow.
This conference is supported by the
National Science Foundation. Partial support will be
available to a limited number of participants from the United States. Priority will be given to recent
(5 years or less) Ph.D.s and graduate students from under-represented
groups in mathematical sciences.
Women and Minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
A banquet in honor of the 60th
birthday of Professor Goong Chen will be given on the evening of
December 15 to celebrate his work in control theory, PDEs, quantum
computing and chemical physics.
