Welcome to the Norbert Wiener Center for
Harmonic Analysis and Applications!
The golden age of Mathematical Engineering is upon us.
The Norbert Wiener Center, in the Department of Mathematics
at the University of Maryland, College Park, reflects the importance of
integrating new mathematical technology and algorithms in
the context of current industrial and academic needs and problems.
Mathematical Engineering in the 21st century is analogous
to Mathematical Physics of the 20th century. Applied harmonic analysis
and its theoretical underpinnings form the technological basis
for Mathematical Engineering. The Norbert Wiener Center advances
research, education, and interaction for this emerging field.

MATTHEW HIRN, assistant professor in MSU's Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering, is the recipient
of a prestigious 2016 Young Faculty Award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
Congratulations to KAITLYN TULEY HOOD on being named a NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow!
Kaitlyn worked with Kasso Okoudjou as a Daniel Sweet Undergraduate Research Fellow of the NWC in 2008.
Congratulations to KATHERINE CORDWELL on being named a 2016 Goldwater Scholar!
Katherine is a Daniel Sweet Undergraduate Research Fellow of the NWC working with John Benedetto.
The Sloan Foundation announced that MATTHEW HIRN is a 2016 Sloan Research Fellow. As a graduate student at UMD, Matt was an integral part of the
Norbert Wiener Center, and he wrote his Ph.D. dissertation under the direction of John Benedetto and Kasso Okoudjou. He is presently an Assistant
Professor at Michigan State University. CONGRATULATIONS, MATT!
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ying Wang, our mathematical daughter (Joe Lakey was her thesis adviser), granddaughter, and sister -- a beautiful part of La Famiglia, see Ying Wang, In Memoriam . She died on September 23, 2015.
Congratulations to our NWC students Matt Begue ('16), Chae Clark ('16), Gokhan Civan ('15), Karamatou Yacoubou Djima ('15), and Paul Koprowski ('15), James Murphy ('15), Dan Weinberg ('15) for having very successful PhD defenses.
Videos of select talks from the 2015 February Fourier Talks are now available here. Thank you to all who participated in FFT2015.
The University of Maryland undergradute team in the Mathematical Modeling Competition was declared a Meritorious Winner. They finished in the top 7.5% of teams that submitted their problem and was one of 27 teams in the United States declared Meritorious Winners. Congratulations to all!
