Baylor professor gives keynote at major international symposium

Dr. Tim Sheng, professor of mathematics and member of CASPER.

Dr. Tim Sheng is in England this month presenting his research and meeting with outstanding scholars from around the world at a trio of international conferences.

Dr. Tim Sheng, a professor of mathematics in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, presented a keynote lecture on computational mathematics this week at the 12th International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Applications to Business, Engineering and Science (DCABES 2013) in London, England.

Sheng, who is also a faculty member in Baylor’s Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics & Engineering Research (CASPER) gave a presentation entitled Modern ADI, LOD and adaptive decomposition algorithms for highly effective and efficient computations, in which he discussed the latest high performance computational strategies in sequential and parallel computations in multi-physics applications, as well as multiple scale distributions and splitting structures.

In addition to presenting at the DCABES symposium, Sheng’s itinerary also includes attending the New Mathematical Directions for Quantum Information conference at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences and the International Conference on Particle Physics and Cosmology (COSMO 2013) at the Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in Cambridge.
