2018 International Graduate Summer School on “Frontiers of Applied and Computational Mathematics”


Applied and computational mathematics plays an important role in physics, mechanics, biology, engineering, finance and other fields. In recent decades, many new research areas have emerged. We plan to organize a summer school from July 9 to July 21, 2018, which covers the basic theories, latest achievements and hot topics in some chosen areas of applied and computational mathematics. This summer school is supported by the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Institute of Natural Sciences of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

In the latest US NEWS rankings for mathematical sciences, SJTU Math ranked 29th globally. The School of Mathematical Sciences (SMS) has been included in the project “Network of International Centers of Education in China” (three in total nationwide), which facilitates its development in internationalization.

Institute of Natural Sciences (INS), SJTU, is becoming an intellectual center for world-class interdisciplinary studies. The INS faculty consists of internationally-established scientists as well as distinguished young research fellows, and with specialties in fields ranging from applied mathematics, physics, computer sciences, to engineering, biology and life sciences.

Target and Characteristics

  1. To promote academic exchange on the frontiers of applied and computational mathematics.
  2. To promote the cultivation of graduate students and young researchers.
  3. To strengthen the cooperation and exchange between SJTU and other institutions.

In view of the characteristics of applied and computational mathematics, we emphasize students’ understanding of the research background of related interdisciplinary fields, enhance students’ mathematical modeling ability and ability to use computational tools in applied mathematics research. By combining coursework, seminars, poster presentation and panel discussions, we want to help students to broaden their horizons and lay a solid foundation in order to to make progress in the frontiers of relevant research fields.

Course Contents and Practical Activities

This summer school include 7 mini-courses in the field of applied and computational mathematics and workshop about some recent advances from July 9 to July 21, 2018. We will spend 6-8 hours for teaching and discussion every day.
