2nd Irish Linear Algebra and
Matrix Theory Meeting
School of Mathematical
Sciences
University College Dublin
Friday, August 29, 2014
University College
Dublin will host the second Irish Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory Meeting.
This is an informal
oneday conference, where scientists with an interest in linear algebra and its
applications can meet each other and talk about their current research.
Participation by postgraduate students is particularly welcome.
The meeting will
take place on the campus of University College Dublin. There is no registration
fee, but please send an email to helena.smigoc@ucd.ie by August 21 with the
subject line: LAMAT Subscribe, if you plan to attend the meeting, to facilitate
catering arrangements.
The meeting is
organized by local organizers Helena Šmigoc and Richard Ellard, and scientific
organizers Rachel Quinlan and Thomas Laffey.
Speakers:

Paul Barry: Structural elements of the
Riordan group of matrices

Anthony Cronin: Using an online adaptive learning tool to enhance the student's
learning experience of Linear Algebra

Richard Ellard: Symmetric nonnegative inverse
eigenvalue problem

Thomas Laffey: Comparing
various ranks of a nonnegative matrix

Niall Madden: Linear solvers for a
singularly perturbed problem

Oliver Mason: Positive in the extreme: extremal norms for positive linear inclusions

James McTigue: Maximal
nonsingular partial matrices

Thai Anh Nahn: Analyses of preconditioners
for problems with boundary layers

Rachel Quinlan: A proof evaluation
exercise in an introductory linear algebra course

Helena Šmigoc: Some
motivational applications of linear algebra
Venue: Board Room 1, Ardmore House, University College Dublin (Building
