The Mathematics of Energy Efficient Buildings

Produced for Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

Synopsis: Dr. John Burns of Virginia Tech discusses the mathematics involved in designing control systems to make buildings more energy efficient.

Commentary: The goal was to take a presentation intended for a scientific audience and create a short video that could be used to raise public awareness of the value of applied math. A total of eight such  segments were created using footage recorded at the 2013 SIAM Annual Meeting in San Diego.
