Edinburgh student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) was founded in September 2009 and is the second SIAM student chapter in the UK. We are jointly sponsored by Heriot-Watt University and University of Edinburgh, and have links with Maxwell Institute of Mathematical Sciences and (ECOSSE), both part of the Edinburgh Research Partnership in Engineering and Mathematics (ERPem).
We strive to
- promote interdisciplinary and multi-institutional exchange between students (graduates and undergraduates) and academics in applied mathematics, engineering and other branches of science.
- provide opportunities for student research and learning.
- advance the application of mathematical techniques to real world problems in science and industry.
Our current membership consists of students and academics from the Department of Mathematics at University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University, and the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University.
