REU Opportunities Summer 2009

Dynamics, Patterns, and Waves

Arnd Scheel

I plan to offer two REU stipends in the summer of 2009. The REU will take place at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Topics will be in the area of dynamical systems, pattern formation, and nonlinear waves. The participants are expected to spend 8 weeks in residence sometime between May 11, 2009 and July 15, 2009. Support will be approximately $4000.

Students will need to be US citizens or permanent residents (green card holder) to participate in this program, and to have not yet completed their undergraduate degree by summer 2009.


Coursework in either Dynamical Systems and Ordinary Differential Equations, or in Partial Differential Equations. Some computational background can be helpful.
