Derks' visit and colloquium talk at the University of Missouri

Gianne Derks visited the Department of Mathematics at the University of Missouri, which is in the city of Columbia, Missouri, from 29 March until 2 April to work with Yuri Latushkin on stability and linearizations in the Euler equation.  During the visit, she gave a colloquium talk on Monday 1st April, on the topic “Existence and stability of stationary fronts in inhomogeneous wave equations“. In the talk she discussed sine-Gordon type models with inhomogeneities for long Josephson junctions and DNA-RNAP interaction. The website for the Department of Mathematics is here.
