The Multiplication Principle (MP) is fundamental to combinatorics, underpinning many standard formulas and providing justification for formal enumeration techniques and informal counting strategies.

I first introduce the classic solutions of edge waves: Stokes’ mode, Ursell’s higher-mode, and Eckart’s shallow-water approximation. By the coordinate translation, Stokes-mode solution becomes identical to that of deep-water waves, in spite of the majority of edge-wave energy being in shallow water. In addition, the evolution equation of nonlinear edge waves turns out equivalent to that of deep-water waves: viz. the nonlinear Schrödinger equation.

The OSU Department of Mathematics will host the 1st Biennial Meeting of the SIAM Pacific Northwest Section (SIAMPNWS) on October 27-29, 2017. Details of the conference will be posted on the conference web page.

The conference will consist of plenary talks, thematic and contributed sessions and a poster session. The meeting will be co-located with the Pacific Northwest Numerical Analysis Seminar (PNWNAS).

The purpose of the Pacific Northwest Section of SIAM is to bring together the different communities of the Pacific Northwest that are active in...

Congratulations are due to Azhar Alhammali, Choah Shin, and Joseph Umhoefer, who received College of Science travel awards and Mathematics Department travel support to attend SIAM Geosciences conference in Erlangen, Germany, September 11-14. Azhar and Choah will present posters, and Joe will speak at a minisymposium. Azhar and Joe also received SIAM Student Travel Awards.

OSU's David Pengelley has published "Beating the Lecture-Textbook Trap with Active Learning and Rewards for All" (http://www.ams.org/publications/journals/notices/201708/rnoti-p903.pdf) in the September issue of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society.

The Graduate School is offering an intensive workshop to help OSU students prepare competitive applications for the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) award. The workshop will be conducted in two sessions. Please attend both sessions.

Session 1: Tuesday, September 26 from 5:30 ? 7:00 PM in LPSC 125

Session 1 will include a brief overview of the GRFP Program, application criteria, a panel discussion with current OSU GRFP Fellows and faculty reviewers, and exercises to help students draft their Personal, Relevant Background and Future Goals Statements.
