Math Professor Joins Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics Membership Committee
Tulin Kaman, Assistant Professor and Lawrence Jesser Toll Jr. Chair in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
Tulin Kaman, Assistant Professor and Lawrence Jesser Toll Jr. in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of California, has been invited to serve on the membership committee of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics for another. three years, starting in January 2022.
The responsibilities of the SIAM Membership Committee are to oversee the development plans of SIAM members, including recruitment and retention, to serve as a channel for information on membership initiatives, and to review and provide orientation on the needs of the members, taking into account the specific needs of the various segments. members, including students, young professionals, internationals and industry.
“I am honored to be invited once again to serve on the committee of the world’s largest professional organization in applied mathematics and computational sciences. I look forward to seeing the U of A as an academic member of SIAM with the best institutions in the near future, ”says Kaman. Kaman recruited new student chapters at U of A, ETH-Zurich (Switzerland) and Sabanci University (Turkey).
After joining the U of A in 2017, Kaman created the Student Chapter to promote research in applied mathematics leading to new methods and techniques useful to industry and science with his students. Throughout these years, the student section of the U of A SIAM has organized interdisciplinary activities to strengthen the interaction between students and faculty in science and engineering departments.
“Our U of A students are very keen to learn more about computational techniques for solving problems in a wide variety of fields. Recently, the chapter hosted the graduate student workshop in conjunction with the 46th University of Arkansas Spring Lecture Series on Evolutionary and Universal Solvers during the week of April 5-9, 2021, and have had the opportunity to learn about recent advances in solvers from 16 lectures given by prominent researchers from government agencies and universities, ”Kaman said.
About SIAM: The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international community of over 14,000 individual members. Nearly 500 academic, industrial, research and development, service and advisory, government and military organizations around the world are Institutional Members. SIAM was incorporated in 1952 as a non-profit organization to impart useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who might implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial or scientific purposes. Since then, the objectives of the SIAM have remained the same. SIAM promotes the development of mathematical and applied computational methodologies necessary in various fields of application. Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential for solving many real world problems. Through publications, research and the community, SIAM’s mission is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.
