MathAcrossCampus is a quarterly colloquium series at the University of Washington to showcase applications of mathematics, with a special emphasis on the growing role of discrete methods in math applications.  The goal of this seminar is to expose theoreticians to applied work, to create a community of mathematicians and users of mathematics at UW, and to serve as a guide to students and researchers looking for projects and jobs in math-related areas by offering exposure to ongoing math applications in the Seattle area.

The MathAcrossCampus colloquium series consists of one main talk per quarter followed by a reception.  Talks are open to the public and are intended to be accessible to a wide audience.


The organizers of MathAcrossCampus are Christopher Hoffman, Farbod Shokrieh, and Jayadev Athreya.
