SAMPLe Seminar

The UC Merced chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is dedicated to enhancing the applied mathematics mission of the university and providing developmental opportunities to its students. Towards that end, we currently run the student-led SAMPLe (Some Applied Math for People to Learn) seminar and organize social events whenever possible.
