Bailey-Derks-Skeldon paper on circle maps and sleep-wake regulation appears in Euro J Appl Maths

The paper “Circle maps with gaps: Understanding the dynamics of the two-process model for sleep–wake regulation“, co-authored by Matt Bailey, Gianne Derks, and Anne Skeldon has been published in the European Journal of Applied Mathematics. The paper studies the “two-process model”, which has played a central role in the understanding of sleep/wake regulation for over […]


Paper of Bevan and Deane on nonlinear elasticity appears in SIAM J Math Analysis

The paper “A calibration method for estimating critical cavitation loads from below in three-dimensional nonlinear elasticity“, co-authored by Jonathan Bevan and Jonathan Deane, has been published in the SIAM Journal of Mathematical Analysis.  A link to the published electronic version is here. In the paper they give an explicit sufficient condition for the affine lambda-map […]


Bin Cheng with teams at Exeter and Imperial awarded EPSRC grant on mathematics of slow-fast coupling in PDEs

A team lead by Beth Wingate (Exeter) and including Bin Cheng (Surrey), Colin Cotter (Imperial), and David Acreman (Exeter) has been awarded an £850k EPSRC grant for the project “On the way to the asymptotic limit: mathematics of slow-fast coupling in PDEs” (EPSRC link here). The grant runs till March 2021. The main motivation of […]
