Title: Modeling the Melt: What Math Tells Us About the Shrinking Polar Ice Caps
Abstract: The precipitous loss of Arctic sea ice has outpaced expert predictions. We will explore how mathematical models of composite materials and statistical physics are being developed to study key sea ice structures and processes and advance how sea ice is represented in climate models. Our composite material models for sea ice are developed in conjunction with field experiments that we have conducted in both the Arctic [...]]]>

The prize committee recognized Prof. Lorig for making “mathematically rigorous the asymptotic theory of derivative pricing and implied volatilities in a wide class of sophisticated financial models.” His methodology has been used to solve a great variety of problems in finance, such as pricing options and swaps, and dynamic/static hedging of derivatives. His work [...]]]>http://depts.washington.edu/amath/professor-lorig-receives-siag-fme-early-career-prize/feed/0Applied Mathematics 2016 Newsletter

I would be lying if I told you the reason I came to the University of Washington was anything other than the incredible mountains just outside the city. But besides these geographic charms, it was clear that the UW was also an excellent engineering school set in a diverse, cool city. In the end my choice was a no-brainer.
I arrived in Applied Mathematics without any clear research plan. My master’s research in Vermont had been in computational [...]]]>http://depts.washington.edu/amath/neuroscience-research-leads-to-satisfying-collaborations/feed/0
