1.  Prepared Talks

Google Maps, by Harry Bishop

-  Abstract.  Harry will discuss his recent work involving Google Maps. 

-  Aerostat Dynamics Modeling Using Mathematica, by Pramud Rawat

Abstract.   An aerostat dynamics model uses Mathematica to derive the
differential equation set for generalized coordinates using Lagrangian
theory.  Thereafter, Matlab-Simulink simulates the nonlinear behavior of the
tethered balloon in a gust.  Simulation outputs are pumped to Mathematica
for animation.  This analysis was recently published in an AIAA paper.  

2.  Mathematica Gems and Discoveries

-  Sharing of Mathematica programming oddities

-  Applications of Mathematica to some areas of science

-  Something recently read and worth sharing

3.  Mathematica Questions, Possible Approaches and Discussion

4.  New Business

Directions to the NVCC-Alexandria campus:

>From I-395, take the Seminary Road exit, go west on Seminary Road, past
Beauregard (light), Echols (light), Fillmore, Dover, turn right on Dawes
(light), and then pass the Coca Cola bottling plant.  Park curbside along
Dawes Ave for free (there should be few cars present, but make sure to park
on the garage-side of the road).  However, if there's no space, then park in
the metered lot located past the flashing traffic light.  Enter the outside
doors of the Bisdorf Building (behind flagpoles):

-  For breakfast (7:30-8:00am), go downstairs to the cafeteria

-  To go to room AA377 (from where you first entered the building, which is
on Level 2), climb one flight of stairs to the third floor, turn left, walk
down the long hall to the room.  

Please arrive by 7:30am if you wish to join us for breakfast.  The meeting
starts at 8:00.
