The Washington D.C. area Mathematica Special Interest Group will meet Friday, 22 August, 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the SAIC Enterprise Center building in Tysons Corner (see directions below).  

Early risers meet before 7:00 in the morning for admission at the front desk, then we have a Dutch treat breakfast downstairs.  By about 7:30 we have moved to one of the classrooms.  Meetings consist of prepared talks, informal discussion about Mathematica programming and applications, general questions, and new business. 
The prepared talks are:

- "An Application of Mathematica to Internal Wave Generation" by Dave Vasholz

- "The Finite Element Method With Mathematica" by Mel Friedman (back from his Computational Electromagnetics course and summer absence)

Bruce Colletti will present "MathGroup Corner", a summary of the month's highlighted traffic in MathGroup, a forum for Mathematica users (  Note:  If the above speakers need more time, we'll defer this Corner to the September meeting.

To inquire about attending, e-mail Dan Martinez (dmartinez at or Bruce Colletti (bcolletti at  In your e-mail subject line, please include 'Mathematica SIG.'
