Lou Kondic, PhD, associate professor of mathematics at NJIT, received a 2005-06 Fulbright Scholar grant to study a dimension of thin film science focusing on the thinnest fluids. Kondic will travel to Argentina, where he will help physicists discover better ways to coat very delicate, almost invisible glass fibers. >>
Members of the NJIT Math Club successfully constructed a simple Foucault's pendulum on Nov. 15 in the stairwell of Fenster Hall. Jonathan Lansey and Ikemefuna Agbanusi affixed a long cable to a ceiling and tied a bowling ball to the end of the cable six flights below, then let the ball sway as they charted its trajectory. >>

Ivan Zorych, PhD, a graduate student in the department of mathematical science who also worked as a teaching assistant at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), received an excellence in teaching award during NJIT's annual university convocation >>
More than 150 girls--fourth through eighth-graders--are launching rockets, designing rollercoasters and analyzing chocolate as part of NJIT's FEMME program, which offers six summer workshops in the fundamentals of aeronautical, biomedical and mechanical engineering. The FEMME program is designed to help girls overcome the gender gap in math, science and engineering. >>
New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) played host this weekend to more than 250 leading experts in applied mathematics.  The researchers poured onto campus for an unusual three-day conference to discuss the frontiers of applied and computational mathematics.The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Air Force Office of Special Research (AFOSR) provided funding. Other sponsors were NJIT, the Society of Math Biology and the Mathematical Biosciences Institute. NJIT's Department of Mathematical Sciences and Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics organized the event. >>
Daljit S. Ahluwalia, PhD, chairman of the department of mathematical sciences at NJIT, addressed conference participants at the opening session of an international mathematics conference on May 13-15, 2005. More than 150 of the nation's most prominent mathematicians attended “Frontiers in Applied and Computational Mathematics,” the second annual event at NJIT to explore recent advances in mathematical biology, mathematical fluid dynamics, nonlinear waves and electro-magnetic and applied statistics.  >>
An international conference—a talk fest among mathematicians—will be held this weekend.  “Frontiers in Applied and Computational Mathematics” will be the second annual event at NJIT to explore recent advances in the worlds of mathematical biology, mathematical fluid dynamics, nonlinear waves and electro-magnetic and applied statistics.  Funders include the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Mathematical Biosciences Institute, the Society for Mathematical Biology and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. >>
Avner Friedman, PhD (at left) of The Ohio State University will be the keynote speaker at the Second Conference on Frontiers in Applied and Computational Mathematics on May 14-15, 2005 at NJIT. Hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics, the conference will explore recent advances in mathematical biology, mathematical fluid dynamics, nonlinear waves and electromagnetics and applied statistics.

The world's oceans, and mathematics, have a lot to say to Eliza Michalopoulou, PhD,  associate professor in the department of mathematics at NJIT. Her work illustrates another of the many ways in which mathematics defends the nation. As a mathematician, Michalopoulou devises algorithms to help U.S. Navy engineers detect submarines in shallow water.  From her underwater (also known as acoustical) research, Michalopoulou can determine the location of submarines and whales, the earth's changing climate, even environmental contamination. >>
Bruce Bukiet, PhD, an associate professor of mathematical sciences at NJIT who has an expertise in mathematical modeling, has issued his annual predictions for the Major League Baseball 2005 season. The Yankees should win the most games in baseball in 2005 and take their division, says Bukiet, and the Mets should win 10 more games than they did last year, but they'll still take fourth place in their division. >>
Twenty-seven high schools from across the state will visit NJIT on March 14, 2005 to participate in the Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics, and Science (TEAMS) competition, a one-day exam that tests teams of four to eight students on math, chemistry, physics, biology, and computer applications. >>
