    • Andrew Hicks Research Award

      Andrew Hicks is the recipient of the Drexel University Research Award

      June 04, 2010

      Dr. R. Andrew Hicks is an outstanding researcher in the field of applied mathematics and optical design. He has made numerous contributions via individual optical components that he has designed, and has created new mathematical models and algorithms for generating these components. A major focus of Dr. Hicks’ research is the development of generating mirrors and lenses that depict the world in a given prescribed way. Dr. Hicks's record includes strong publications in the top journals, external funding from government agencies (NSF, DARPA) and industry, and he is the inventor on potentially very valuable patents.

      Dean's Seminar: How to Solve Physical Problems with Computers

      May 14, 2010

      Speaker: Bo Dong, Drexel University

      Date: May 19, 2010
      Time: 3:30 - 5:00 PM
      Place: Disque Hall, Room 109

      Abstract: Many problems in the physical sciences and engineering can be modeled by differential equations. For complicated mathematical models, exact solutions are often impossible to obtain using analysis tools. Instead, individuals will often use numerical methods (algorithms and computers) to obtain approximate solutions while maintaining reasonable error bounds. In this talk, Dr. Dong will discuss numerical methods for solving mathematical models, in particular, finite element methods for solving differential equations.
