Speaker: Lexing Ying, Professor of Mathematics, Stanford
Title: Fast algorithms for physical sciences
Abstract: In this talk, I will give an introduction to fast algorithms for computational problems in physical sciences. I will start with a brief discussion of the fast multipole method and then highlight some key ideas in other important examples.
