Prof. Gunnar Martinsson has been invited to present a series of 10 lectures at Dartmouth College on June 23-29, 2014. The lectures will be the main feature of a meeting sponsored by the Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) and the National Science Foundation, and will survey a body of work developed by Professor Martinsson over the last 10 years, concerning so called "fast direct solvers" for elliptic partial differential equations.

Selection as a CBMS speaker is highly competitive, with less than 10 selected from across all the mathematics sciences each year. This is the third time an APPM faculty member has received this distinction, with Professor Harvey Segur chosen in 2008, and Professor Bengt Fornberg in 2011.
