The contribution of traditional and modern day materials science research has ushered in unprecedented success in state-of-the-art electronics and device applications. From sustaining the Moore’s law in integrated circuits (ICs) to the recent innovations in plastic and printed electronics, the interdisciplinary amalgamation of physics, chemistry, mathematics and engineering with materials science has steered informed and judicious manipulation of existing and new materials in their nanoscale dimensions. In this presentation, we would briefly discuss about the current trends in Fin-field effect transistors (FETs), quantum dot FETs and carbon nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes and graphene) based thin film transistors (TFTs). The invention of novel materials and their processing techniques in these technologies are believed to benefit incredibly from the ever evolving and reliable mathematical models, statistical and pattern- analysis techniques.

For a decade he has been a regular participant in the acoustics workshops sponsored by the Violin Society of America.
This work analyzes a mathematical model for shell structure acoustics based on the Naghdi shell equations, and screen boundary integral equations, with full coupling at the shell mid-surface. This allows fully 3d modeling using FEM/BEM on 2d surfaces. The use of adjoint equations permits the computation of derivatives with respect to large parameter sets in shape optimization problems where the thickness and mid-surface of the shell are computed so as to generate a radiated sound ﬁeld subject to broad-band design requirements, appropriate for challenging problems in structural acoustics such as the design of musical instruments.

LSU SIAM and AWM Student Chapters will host a Career Discussion with an LSU Mathematics Alumna, Ms. Pat Bodin on Thursday, October 11, 2012 from 1:00pm-2:30pm in Lockett Hall 321 (the Keisler Lounge).
Ms. Pat Bodin graduated from LSU in 1972 with a degree in mathematics. Since her graduation, she has had a successful career in the oil and gas industry. She worked for ExxonMobil for over 35 years. During that time,she held management positions in accounting, finance, and information technology until eventually being appointed to the role of Chief Information Officer for the corporation.

Abstract: The talk gives an overview of some discrete approximation techniques that
have been developed for optimal control problems. We focus in particular on
Runge-Kutta discretizations and more recent work on pseudospectral schemes. The
numerical paradigm consistency + stability => convergence is explained in the
context of these discretizations. Gradient techniques for solving the discretized
problems will also be discussed. Additional details can be found at
