Boundary Integral Equation Research Group

The boundary integral equations research group meets weekly to share and discuss current boundary integral equations research in the Applied Mathematics Unit here at UC Merced. We will focus on applications to electromagnetics and fluid mechanics.  

Our group is led by Professors Francois Blanchette, Camille Carvalho, Shilpa Khatri, and Arnold Kim and consists of undergradaute students,graduate students, postdocs and faculty in the Applied Mathematics program.
