Inverse Problems, Summer, 2002

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington will be offering a summer research opportunity under the auspices of the National Science Foundation's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. The program will last for eight weeks, from June 24 until August 16. Participants will be introduced to research problems related to the problem of finding the resistors in a network from boundary measurements. Students in the program will be investigating and formulating discrete problems involving planar and non-planar networks and their relation to continuous inverse problems. Some papers that have been produced on these problems can be viewed from links on this page. This page also includes application forms.
