Short Courses Through the Years

The purpose of the Short Course is to provide a diverse audience of professional and in–training mathematicians an introduction to an area of applied mathematics that can:

  • Satisfy the curiosity of those new to the subject
  • Provide an entrée to new research topics
  • Inspire new methods of problem solving
  • Be part of participants' professional development and continuing education

The Short Course will not be offered at JMM 2024. Questions regarding the Short Course may be directed to the Programs Department.
