Consulting service


We would like to offer you, free of charge, a piece of advice on many aspects associated with Computational Mathematics as well as Scientific Computing in general. We are a group of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are passionate about computational aspects of many scientific and engineering disciplines. If you have a problem, for instance, with the implementation of sophisticated boundary conditions in your finite-element-based solver, or maybe you wondering which linear system algorithm would be the most effective for your simulation, then we invite you to contact one of our tutors or simply send an email to siam@math.mcmaster.ca. In the below table, you can find the list of our tutors that might help in solving your problem. If you are looking for more advanced expertise in some subfield, for example you are confused about your eigenvalues comming from a sophisticated system of elliptic PDEs, then please send an email before visiting us so we could arrange office hours with an appropriate tutor. However, if your question involves some basics of numerical analysis, programming languages or other related aspects, you are welcome to come by in the indicated time.

Please keep in mind that we are not here to solve you homeworks or course projects for numerical analysis-related courses, which does not mean that we must not discuss the problems you are struggling with!
