Professors Craig C. Douglas and Rongsong Liu.


The CAM seminar series is currently supported through volunteers and the financial contributions by the UW Mathematics Department,, and and an energy grant from ExxonMobil.


For Spring 2019, the speakers are as follows:

Date Speaker From/Note
February 15 Dongwoo Sheen University of Wyoming
April 12 Mauricio Kritz LNCC
April 19 Mauricio Kritz LNCC

* Thursday Colloquium in AG 1030, ** Joint CAM - Analysis seminar

We are constantly looking for speakers for the current academic year! The topics can be original research, a survey of an area, or an interesting paper or papers that would interest the CAM community. If you would like to speak, please contact me by email.

The schedule, titles, and abstracts from Fall 2018 are here.

An Introduction to the Idea of an Algebraic Multiscale Method
Prof. Dongwoo Sheen, Department of Mathematics, Seoul National University

We introduce an algebraic multiscale method. The idea is motivated from the algebraic multigrid method (AMG), which is an iterative scheme to accurately approximate the solution to a linear system of equations. Our approach differs in investigating in how to obtain a rough approximation to the original algbraic system arising from modeling heterogeneous materials. We discuss in detail how macroscopic basis functions can be formulated and result in a reduced macroscopic linear system based on the knowledge of the microscopic linear system, with significant redution of dimensions.
