The Rose Mathematics Seminar

Overview

The Rose-Hulman Mathematics Seminar meets on a regular basis throughout the year per the schedule below. The seminar is quite informal and so the topics are likely to vary from week to week .  Anyone --- student, faculty, or visitor --- is encouraged to give a talk or series of talks on any topic of interest.  We're especially happy to have students attend or better yet, give talks! Students can get credit for attending and giving talks, by signing up for MA450. For seminars in past years go to the seminar history page. Here is a printable campus map if needed by our off-campus visitors.

  • Topic:  Modeling the feasibility of the widespread use of electric vehicles
  • Speaker:  Students from Dr. Allen Holder’s MA491 Mathematical Modeling Class, Rose Student
  • Date:  13 Nov 2013
  • Abstract:  Electric vehicles are promoted as being environmentally friendly alternatives to traditional internal combustion engines. However, is there a clear benefit to electric vehicles? The two MA491 classes model several environmental and economic aspects associated with the widespread use of electric vehicles to assess their practicality. This question was the 2011 Interdisciplinary Content in Modeling (ICM) question. This, and many other modeling questions, are located at www.comap.com.
