5th Postgraduate Numerical Analysis Day

Welcome to the webpage for the

5th Bath/Brunel/Cardiff/Imperial/Oxford/Reading Numerical Analysis Postgraduate Seminar Day

which takes place at Cardiff School of Mathematics on Friday, 18th September 2009.

Starting time will be approximately 10.00am and we aim to finish by 17.30pm. There will then be time for discussions, drinks and a meal in a local restaurant. This is the 5th such meeting and the aim of these days is to give PhD students a chance to talk to peers in a relaxed environment. We also hope that many established academics will be able to attend.
