We are a student organization sponsored by Institute of Computational Mathematics & Scientific/Engineering Computing (ICMSEC), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). We were founded in June of 2011 by a small group of enthusiastic students in ICMSEC, according to the petition of Professor Lloyd Nick Trefethen (SIAM President) and Professor Ya-Xiang Yuan (our Faculty Advisor).
Our main goals are:
- To build strong connections between SIAM and the students in ICMSEC, between students and faculty, and among students from different research areas.
- To encourage and help students to apply mathematics to real-world problems, by establishing links with industrial partners.
- To promote the development of industrial and applied mathematics in ICMSEC, even in China. This is our long-term goal. It is in this list because we believe that the optimal way to develop any science is to make more students get involved, as students are the future.
For past and future activities, please visit the Activities Calendar.

Lecture of CAS SIAM Student Chapter 2014-2015(II)
On Dec. 22, 2014, Jinglin Li was invited to give us a talk named “Application of the pseudo spectral method in the missile trajectory optimization designs” in Lecture of CAS SIAM Student Chapter. She is a PHD student of School of Astronautics, Beihang University.
In her talk, she gave us a brief introduction of trajectory optimization designs which were very important in the aircraft designs such as the missile designs. These problems can be modeled as linear or nonlinear optimal control problems with ODEs or PDEs constraints. She showed us how to use the pseudo spectral method to solve these problems and she also showed us the efficiency and the higher accuracy of this method when it was used to solve these problems.
The talk attracted many graduate students with various academic backgrounds, including those who are not the member of our chapter. They had hot discussions after her talk.
