CCU shows math at work in the real world with MA+H: Applied

"Mathematics and Biology: Evolution of the Mutualism," with guest speaker Clinton Meyer, Ph.D., of Simpson College in Iowa, will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 3 p.m. at Coastal Carolina University's E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration in room 309. The event is free and open to the public.

In its second year, the "MA+H: Applied" lecture series at CCU continues to promote how mathematics is used in other disciplines.

Meyer will describe the relationship between mathematics and biology, from basic practical applications to new developments in biological information (e.g., genomes), computational power and mathematical theory. There will also be a focus on the ways in which sub-fields of biology such as ecology, cell and molecular biology, and biological modeling depend on cooperation with mathematicians.

Each year "MA+H: Applied" invites three speakers from CCU in the fall and an outside keynote speaker in January to discuss math's place in their fields. The "MA+H: Applied" lecture series is made possible by the contributions of Subhash Saxena, distinguished professor emeritus, who was a member of CCU's mathematics faculty for 27 years.
