Graham Harper Mathematics Presentation
February 25 @ 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Former CSU-Pueblo math major, Graham Harper will be here on Tuesday, February 25 to give a presentation.
Title: My Journey Through the World of Mathematics
Abstract: My name is Graham Harper and I am graduating in August from Colorado State University with my Ph.D. in mathematics. This talk will take you on my journey from my undergraduate education at Colorado State University – Pueblo to where I am today. I will start with my background and story, and then I will discuss how basic principles from Calculus 1 and 2 may be extended to benefit us for computing solutions to models of the world around us. Toward the end I will discuss a new finite element method, the weak Galerkin finite element method, and my current Ph.D. work using this method to compute numerical solutions to partial differential equations for fluids coupled along an interface.PM 1
