News and Announcements

The GGAM Mini-Conference, our annual day-long event, will take place on Saturday, February 20.
A long list of courses offered on campus in the Winter quarter that have been recommended by GGAM faculty for Applied Math graduate students.
In the Fall 2015 GGAM Colloquium, Raissa D'Souza (GGAM member and Professor of Computer Science and of Mechanical Engineering) will speak about "Percolation, cascades and control of interdependent networks". The colloquium is followed by a reception and by GGAM business meetings.
2013 Applied Math Ph.D. Robert Hildebrand receives the prestigious Herman Goldstine Memorial Postdoctoral Fellowship at IBM Research for 2015–2016.
Read about research highlights of Joel Hass and Rafael Granero Belinchón, the career of 2011 Applied Math Ph.D. Yuji Nakatsukasa, an update from the graduate programs, the 2014–2015 graduate degree recipients, and more.
This prestigious award is given each year by the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the world's largest association of technical professionals, for outstanding contributions to control systems engineering, science, or technology.
