Welcome to Manchester SIAM-IMA Student Chapter!

The University of Manchester SIAM-IMA 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 Masters students at The University of Manchester, with help from our Faculty Advisors Nicholas J. Higham and David Silvester.

If you are a member of SIAM and an IMA e-Student, you can join the Chapter now by filling the registration form. SIAM membership is free of charge for all the students of the University of Manchester, if you are not a SIAM member yet you can apply here. To become an IMA e-Student follow the instructions on the IMA site.

N Brown Problem-solving Day

4 months ago

The N Brown Day is postponed until a later date in line with N Brown's COVID-19 prevention policy

The Manchester SIAM IMA Student Chapter is hosting a mathematical workshop in collaboration with N Brown on the 18th of March.

N Brown is an online retailer, headquartered in Manchester, which offers a range of products; predominantly clothing, footwear and homewares. During the workshop a data scientist from N Brown, Mary Guettel, will present a mathematical problem which arises in her work. There will then be a computer lab session where we will work in groups to come up with creative solutions to the problem. The workshop will conclude with a discussion session, with free food provided.

The students can use any of Excel, R, Python, MATLAB, or other preferred tools, however, no prior mathematical or programming knowledge is necessary. As such, this workshop is well suited for undergraduates and postgraduates alike. This will be a great opportunity to see how mathematical problems can arise in business and industry.
