Wednesday afternoon Dan Stanescu gave a wonderful introduction to discretization of differential equations. The students were set to work on several problems and were given the chance to interact and work in small groups.
Thursday morning the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day, unfortunately there is still much work to be done. Greg Lyng gave a stimulating continuation of a continuous talk... Again students were given some problems to work through, and this time were told to be prepared to present their work.
Hakima Bessaih gave our second talk on difference equations, and gave an introduction to the logistic equation, which will lead discussion into fractals. After a long morning of talks students were allowed a lunch time, we will see what the afternoon holds.
