New Zealand Institute of Mathematics & its Applications (NZIMA)

2009 Programmes

Energy, Wind and Water

Programme theme: Our theme is the combined use of simulation, optimization and control algorithms to investigate and solve engineering problems involving energy, wind and water.We will emphasize cross-disciplinary approaches in which simulation techniques, such as computational fluid dynamics, are combined with optimization algorithms to improve engineering designs, or with control algorithms to improve operations. We will stress applications and will target the programme at mathematicians and scientists as well as engineers.

More infomation can be found on the programme website.

Programme directors: Professor Mike O'Sullivan (University of Auckland) and Professor Gordon Mallinson (University of Auckland)

Workshop details: A meeting was held 9-12 February 2009, at the University of Auckland.

Mathematical & Statistical Knowledge for Teachers at Senior Levels

Programme theme: The overall aim of the project is to ensure that the mathematical conditions exist in the last years of schooling and undergraduate courses in New Zealand to provide a sufficient flow of mathematically competent graduates to meet the needs of all sectors of society that require mathematical knowledge and abilities beyond Yr 11 levels.

There is no programme website at this stage.

Programme directors: Associate Professor Bill Barton (University of Auckland) and Associate Professor Megan Clark (Victoria University of Wellington)
