Welcome students! I am happy that you sign up for my MTH499/EAS621 Spring 2013 CSUMS class. This class is going to be different than regular class in the sense that you choose a topic, learn it as deep as you can, and present what you have learned to other students. You are expected to :

- Do some numerical experiments with problem solving environment such as MATLAB, Mathematica, Maple, or other open source tools.
- Read references to learn about history, interesting phenomena, and numerical techniques.
- Write your research diary in your blog.
- Make research presentation.
- Make report in LaTeX.
- Make a poster.

Things you need to do during the first week:

- Choose advisor (+ co advisor).
- Choose research topic of your interest or discuss possible interesting research topics with your advisor.
- Set up regular meeting with your advisor to report your progress.
