Gianne Derks speaks at spectral theory conference in Mexico

Gianne Derks is in Mexico this week (18-23 June), attending and speaking at the Conference on “Geometrical methods, non self-adjoint spectral problems, and stability of periodic structures“, being held at the BANFF Research Station in Oaxaca Mexico (see map below).  A link to the conference webpage is here.  Gianne gave on talk on Thursday 22 […]


Turner-Weidman paper to appear in Physical Review Fluids

The paper “The stability of a radially stretching disc beneath a uniformly rotating fluid” co-authored by Matt Turner and Patrick Weidman (University of Colorado) has been accepted for publication in Physical Review Fluids. The paper investigates the temporal and absolute instability properties for a flow that consists of a radially stretching plate under a rigidly […]


James Grant organises geometry conference in Florence Italy

James Grant is organising an international conference on “Non-regular Space-Time Geometry” this week (20-22 June) in Florence, Italy. Co-organisers include Piotr T. Chruściel (Vienna), Michael Kunzinger (Vienna), and Ettore Minguzzi (Florence). The Meeting is aimed at gathering reseachers with an interest in global Lorentzian geometry under weak regularity assumptions on the metric. The conference emphasises […]
