Learning LaTeX: An Introduction to the Basics

Presented by Stephanie Konarski
Friday, March 24 at 3 PM in ETC 4.150

LaTeX is the preferred platform for writing long, technical documents such as Master’s theses and PhD dissertations. This talk will cover topics ranging from installation to more advanced formatting techniques useful for scientific and mathematical writing. Special emphasis will be placed on the use of the LaTeX template utilized by many UT students to generate theses and dissertations fully consistent with the university’s style and formatting requirements.
Hope to see you there!

Presenter: Ben Goldsberry
Friday, March 10 at 3 PM in ETC 4.150

FEniCS is a general-purpose open-source finite element code for Python and C++. This talk will introduce FEniCS in the context of solving acoustics problems and provide a framework for new users to begin using the code. The features of FEniCS will also be compared with those available in commercial finite element software.
Hope to see you there!

Yonsei Universitywith Won-Suk Ohm, Associate Professor (Yonsei University)
This Friday (11/4) in ETC 4.150 (the seminar room) at 3 PM

The Acoustical Ask-Me-Anything series continues this Friday with Dr. Won-Suk Ohm, a former student of Dr. Blackstock and Dr. Hamilton who is now an associate professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Yonsei University. He is currently on sabbatical in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Brigham Young University. He received his B.S. in mechanical engineering and mathematics (minor) at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in 1994, and M.S.E. (1997) and Ph.D. (2001) at the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) under D. T. Blackstock and M. F. Hamilton, respectively.
Following his graduate study at UT Austin, he moved to Ottawa, Canada, to join the Institute for National Measurement Standards, National Research Council (NRC-INMS) as an NSERC Canadian Government Laboratory Visiting Fellow (2002-2004) and a guest researcher (2004-2005). Prior to joining the Yonsei faculty in 2008, he was a senior research engineer at Medison Co. Ltd., a diagnostic ultrasound company headquartered in Seoul, South Korea. He conducts research in physical and engineering acoustics, in relation to such areas as noise/vibration/harshness, nondestructive evaluation, biomedical ultrasonics, and defense.

The Acoustical AMA series allows current students to meet with acoustical professionals in an informal setting and pick their brains concerning all things acoustics and related career paths.
