澳大辦計算及應用數學研討會

The University of Macau's (UM) Department of Mathematics recently held a seminar on computational and applied mathematics. The seminar attracted dozens of experts and scholars from mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macao. During the event, the participants had an in-depth discussion on their latest research findings as well as various topics in the field, including computational physics, multiscale modeling and computation, and fast numerical methods.

In his opening speech, Department of Mathematics Prof Jin Xiaoqing said that the department has gained increasing international recognition in recent years, thanks to the joint effort of experts and scholars in the field and the support of UM. He added that the seminar provided a platform for mathematicians to discuss the latest developments in the area of computational and applied mathematics, which is very beneficial to UM faculty and students.

Participants in the seminar included Prof Tang Tao from the Department of Mathematics, South University of Science and Technology of China; Prof Xu Kun from the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; Prof Lu Tiao from the School of Mathematical Sciences, Peking University; Jin Changqiu, a researcher from the Institute of Applied Physics and Computational Mathematics; Prof Qiao Zhonghua from the Department of Applied Mathematics, Hong Kong Polytechnic University; Zhou Tao, a researcher from the Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, as well as Prof Sun Haiwei, Prof Tam Sik Chung, Prof Vong Seak Weng, Dr Lei Siu Long, and Dr Hu Guanghui from UM’s Department of Mathematics.

澳門大學科技學院數學系主辦的“計算及應用數學研討會"吸引數十名來自中國內地、香港和澳門專家學者參與,報告相關領域最新研究成果。

澳大科技學院數學系金小慶教授致辭時表示,澳大計算數學近年在大學支持、相關專家學者努力下取得長足發展,國際影響力亦與日俱增。是次研討會吸引眾多知名的數學專家學者聚首一堂,就會議主題“計算及應用數學"演講與討論,相信對澳大師生獲益良多。

研討會報告內容豐富,研究領域涉及計算物理、多尺度建模及計算、偏微分方程快速演算法、無結構網格高維插值、晶體位元錯的建模與計算等。專家學者就相關領域展示了其最新研究成果,並跟與會者進行深入探討。

與會專家學者包括南方科技大學數學系講座教授湯濤、香港科技大學數學系及機械與航空航太工程系講座教授徐昆、香港浸會大學副教授淩立雲、北京大學數學科學學院副教授盧脁、北京應用物理與計算數學研究所研究員晉長秋、香港理工大學應用數學系助理教授喬中華、中國科學院數學與系統科學研究院計算數學所助理研究員周濤,以及澳大數學系三位副教授孫海衛、譚錫忠、黃錫榮和兩名博士李兆隆及胡光輝。
