06 Jun 2018 Workshop day in review

On May 30th, we held our annual workshop day. This year it was on multigrid and multilevel methods. During this day, eight people from TU Delft and other institutes in the Netherlands and Belgium gave short presentations on their research. The workshop was followed by a barbecue at freezone B with live music. We would like to thank our six speakers Mousa, Roe, Prashant, Pieter, Marc and Frits, as well as our keynote speakers Kees and Hadi for their interesting presentations. The book of abstracts as well as the slides of the presentations can be found here.

22 Nov 2017 Looking for a new Board

Dear SIAM Student Chapter members,

In the previous years the SIAM Student Chapter Delft has organised a multitude of activities, such as workshop days, BBQs, movie nights, company visits, baNaNa talks and chess tournaments. To make such activities happen next year as well, we are looking for a new board for 2018!

As a board member, you will be able to choose and organize these activities (and others) yourself with your fellow board members. This is a great opportunity to get some non-scientific experience during you PhD.

If you might be interested and want some more information about being a board member of the SIAM Student Chapter Delft, join our interest lunch on Wednesday November 29th at 12.00 in meetingroom 1.4 of EWI (LB 01.210). Lunch will be provided. Please let us know if you’re coming by filling in the doodle:

20 Nov 2017 Optiver in review

On the 3rd of November the SIAM Student Chapter visited Optiver where we learnt all about making big money in high frequency trading ;-). It was great fun to see how much value theoretic maths still has in an application that seems so far removed from the theory.
