The UMAP Journal

In a recent correspondence with Paul Campbell, of Beloit College, Beloit WI, who is the  Editor of The UMAP Journal, Paul said that he hoped SIMIODE community members would take note of the opportunity to share modeling activities in the journal's Model Reality Check section.

One interesting article, Skydiving Math, by Mark Biegert, GPON hardware Director, Calix, Inc., Plymouth MN (Volume 34, Number 4, 2013, pp. 315-325), built a model of the 14 October 2012 parachute jump of Felix Baumgartner from 128,100 ft.

This is yet one more example of how folks engage in modeling with differential equations and share the experience. So to paraphrase a vogue TV ad, "What's in your differential modeling kit?"

Let us hear from you and consider submitting a Modeling Scenario for publication at SIMIODE. And do not forget the possibilities of submitting your ideas to The UMAP Journal.
