Center for Nonlinear Analysis (CNA)
The Information and Communication Technologies Institute (ICTI) Program in Applied Mathematics offers a unique international opportunity for educational and research training in applied mathematics. The program is part of a broad Portuguese Government sponsored long-term partnership between CMU and several Portuguese universities (http://www.icti.cmu.edu) with the goal of stimulating collaborative research and fostering scientific and technological skills at the highest levels.
Center for Computational Finance (CCF)
The Center for Computational Finance hosts the Nash Lecture Series, which brings to campus distinguished researchers who have applied mathematical methods to solve problems in finance. Past lecturers were Robert Merton, Stephen Ross, Harry Markowitz and Darrell Duffie. The series is named for John F. Nash, Jr., who earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in mathematics in 1948 from the Carnegie Institute of Technology, which has since been renamed Carnegie Mellon University. In 1994 Nash shared in the Alfred Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics. The Center also hosts the Heath Lecture series, in honor of David Heath, who retired from Carnegie Mellon in 2006. Heath is best known for the Heath-Jarrow-Morton model of the term structure of interest rates.
