Position Title: Postdoc
Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: New York, New York 10012, United States [map]
Subject Area: Numerical Algebraic Differential Equations
Application Deadline: 2019/11/30help popup (posted 2019/10/15, listed until 2020/04/15)
Position Description:    

Seeking Postdoctoral Candidates for an NSF Medium Project: "Collaborative Research: Numerical Algebraic Differential Equations"

This project is under the guidance of Professor Chee Yap (in collaboration with Professors Alexey Ovchinnikov and Victor Pan at CUNY).

It addresses the fundamental problem of solving systems of algebraic differential equations, motivated by applications in such areas as cellular biology, approximation for chemical reaction systems, combinatorics, and analysis.

There are three general approaches to attack such problems:

(A) symbolic approach,

(B) numerical approach, and a

(C) hybrid symbolic-numeric approach.

Approach (A) has the strongest guarantees of reliability but are often too slow, while (B) produces corrupted outputs on singular and ill-conditioned inputs. This project will develop new certified techniques in approach (C).

The position is immediately available for one year, with options to extend to another year.

NYU Courant is a highly respected institute for cutting-edge research and advanced training in applied mathematics and computer science. NYU Courant is in the very heart of the world's leading artistic and financial center in downtown Manhattan.
