Coastal Carolina lecture series shows math at work in the real world
Jan 26, 2013 (The Sun News (Myrtle Beach - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
For the second year, Coastal Carolina University will hold the "MA+H: Applied" lecture series, which promotes how mathematics is used in other disciplines, according to a news release from CCU.
"Mathematics and Biology: Evolution of the Mutualism" features guest speaker Clinton Meyer, Ph.D., of Simpson College in Iowa. It will be held Wednesday at 3 p.m. in room 309 at the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. The event is free and open to the public.
Meyer will describe the relationship between mathematics and biology, from basic practical applications to new developments in biological information (e.g., genomes), computational power and mathematical theory. There will also be a focus on the ways in which subfields of biology, such as ecology, cell and molecular biology, and biological modeling depend on cooperation with mathematicians.
Each year "MA+H: Applied" invites three speakers from CCU in the fall and an outside keynote speaker in January to discuss math's place in their fields. The "MA+H: Applied" lecture series is made possible by the contributions of Subhash Saxena, distinguished professor emeritus, who was a member of CCU's mathematics faculty for 27 years.
