Python is a high-level programming language that is leveraged in a wide range of disciplines and fields. This webinar training introduces Python basics and will also familiarize those in attendance with its powerful capabilities for data analysis and visualization. It will be taught using live coding and the audience is encouraged to follow along on their systems. All the required files are included in the resources section below.
Every year the New Mexico SMART Grid Center submits three highlights from the previous project year to the National Science Foundation. This year's highlights recognize "DC Street" at NMSU, seed award results from NMT, and the Explora Science Communication Fellowship program. Below are overviews of what these outstanding project team members are working on - summarized in 250 words or less.
IT'S GOOD TO BE DIRECT
Olga Lavrova, New Mexico State University
Abstract: This talk will present theoretical and algorithmic results on exploiting symmetry to reduce the computational complexity large-scale control and optimization problems. First, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory complexity of explicit solutions of optimization problems. Second, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory and computational complexity of an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) optimization algorithm.
Hey, students! Don’t have time to go looking for summer internships? No problem, we’ve done it for you.
STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP) by NM SMART Grid Center
Who: Undergraduates students from New Mexico regional universities, community colleges and tribal colleges.
Abstract: An increasing number of researchers and research teams are using distributed version control systems like Git to enable efficient collaboration around and sharing of analytic code, software tools, and documentation. Whether you are developing analysis code, developing a manuscript in LaTeX, building a web interface for your project, or writing your dissertation you can use Git to organize and document your development process and systematically integrate and test the contributions by your team.
