# Applied Mathematics Seminar

The Applied Mathematics Seminar (AMS) typically meets on Thursdays in the Adel Mathematics Building. Any faculty, students, or friends of the department are welcome to attend. Seminar talks are typically rotated between faculty (and on occasion students or visitors) with research interests related to applied mathematics, widely defined to include almost anything from ordinary and partial differential equations, dynamical systems, nonlinear and linear functional analysis, numerical analysis, optimization, operations research, scientific computing, modeling, and advanced physics.

### Spring 2022 Schedule

For Spring 2022 we are meeting from 12:45-1:45 PM via Zoom, until we deem it safe to meet in room 224 of the Adel Mathematics Building.

**January 20, February 10: Ryan Kelly**, A Birkhoff Polynomial Interpolation Theorem with Applications

**February 24: Shafiu Jibrin**, Conjugate Gradient Methods

### We plan to meet in person, in AMB 224, starting on March 10

**March 10: Ye Chen**, Statistical Calibration in Epedemiological Forecast

Abstract: Statistical calibration is a method that adjusts the prediction of a model to match the empirical data as close as possible. It is applied in some forecast models to increase prediction accuracy. I will go through the details of a calibration method I used in flu and COVID-19 prediction.

**March 24: John Neuberger**, Series Solutions to Besselâ€™s equation and Bessel-like equations

**March 31:** Seminar cancelled

**April 7: John Neuberger**, Using the variational method for proving the existence of a sign changing solution to a superlinear elliptic BVP

**April 14, 21, 28: Cancelled**, due to the many talks by job candidates.
