Bath Numerical Analysis Seminar, 1st Semester 2010/2011
The Numerical Analysis seminar at Bath has been running continuously since 1986 and features a range
of invited talks from distinguished visitors as well as internal talks by staff and students of Mathematical
Sciences and other Departments at the University of Bath.
The Bath Numerical Analysis Seminar takes place Fridays at 12.15 in 4W1.7 (also known as the Wolfson
Lecture Theatre). Campus maps can be found here.
Everyone is welcome at these talks and don't forget to join us for lunch after the seminar.

University Campus for the day.
Guidelines for internal speakers for the introductions of their talks
Since the audience of the NA seminar contains both PhD students and staff with quite wide
interests and backgrounds, the beginning of your talk should answer the following 4 questions (e.g.
if doing a slide show, the first 4 slides could have these titles):
You may want to revisit these points later on in the talk (e.g. to give more detail), but following this template should
mean that early
on in the talk the audience have a clear idea of the motivation for the material you're covering.
- What is the problem you're considering?
- Why do you find this interesting?
- What has been done before on this problem/what's the background?
- What is your approach/what are you going to talk about?
If you have any queries, please email the seminar organiser here.
