The reading group meets every Thursday at 2:30 pm in ECSN 4.618 to discuss a topic related to the book being studied. One member of the lab presents the topic, which is generally a chapter in the book, but can be other relevant material. The format is less formal and more discussion-oriented than for the Seminar.

Yuan Zou is in charge of organizing the reading group.

We are currently studying Numerical Methods for Scientists and Engineers by R.W.Hamming.
