The Workshop on the Mathematics of Homeland Security is an exciting two-day program designed to introduce high school mathematics teachers to mathematical methods that are applied to important problems in homeland security.
Topics will include methods for: detecting disease outbreaks, inspecting containers at ports, identifying strategies to prevent the spread of disease, locating sensors for biological chemical and nuclear threats, finding evidence of conspiracies, and identifying the author of a document.
The workshop is offered by the new DHS Center for Dynamic Data Analysis (DyDAn) based at the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) at Rutgers University. The topics will be presented by leading researchers involved in applying mathematics to problems in homeland security.
The workshop will provide activities and materials that will enable you to introduce your students to how mathematics is applied to these important problems.
* LOCATION: The workshop will be held at Rutgers University/New Brunswick - - Busch Campus in Piscataway, NJ.
