Welcome to Manchester SIAM Student Chapter!

The University of Manchester SIAM Student Chapter encourages the promotion of applied mathematics and computational science to students, especially, but not limited to, graduate students. The Chapter was set up in December 2009, and is run by a committee of PhD and Master students at The University of Manchester, with help from our Faculty Advisors Nicholas J. Higham and David Silvester.
