Applied Math Lab

The Applied Mathematics Lab of the Courant Institute is an interdisciplinary research lab whose interests span applied mathematics, physics, and biology. The laboratory joins a small but select group of experimental facilities housed within Departments of Mathematics. The AML is a dual use space for both experimental research and educational laboratory demonstration, and is an arena where mathematical theory and numerical simulation collide with experimental observation and measurement. For more information, please visit the AML web site.
