Aston's paper accepted in Mathematics of Computation

The paper “Computing the invariant measure and the Lyapunov exponent for one-dimensional maps using a measure-preserving polynomial basis“, by Philip Aston and Oliver Junge (TU Munich) has been accepted for publication in the journal Mathematics of Computation.  The paper considers a generalization of Ulam’s method for approximating invariant densities of one-dimensional chaotic maps.  Rather than […]

Bridges visits Berlin and Stuttgart

During the week of 4th March, Tom Bridges visited the Weierstrass Institute in Berlin and the Lehrstuhl für Analysis und Modellierung at the Universität Stuttgart.  At the Weierstrass Institute he visited the group of Alexander Mielke and gave a talk on “Reapprasial of 2+ myths in the theory of nonlinear waves” and at Stuttgart he […]

Sfetsos gives a talk at the University of Swansea

Kostas Sfetsos visited Swansea University in Wales on Friday 8 March to give a seminar in the Swansea Theory Group in the Department of Physics.  The title of the talk was “Non-abelian T-duality and AdS/CFT” with abstract: the notion of T-duality in supergravity backgrounds with non-Abelian isometries and non-vanishing RR fluxes will be reviewed.  The […]

Roulstone project on flooding funded by NERC

A joint project between the University of Reading and the University of Surrey, on “Flooding from Intense Rainfall”, has been funded by NERC.  The total project is worth £1.01m and provides a fully funded PhD studentship for Surrey.  The project will address both the strategic challenge of the NERC natural hazards theme to “enable better […]

Colin Little passes PhD viva

Congratulations to Colin Little for passing his PhD viva on Friday 1st March.  The title of his PhD thesis is “Deterministic driven random walks in a random environment“, and the project was supervised by Ian Melbourne.  The external examiner was Mark Holland (Exeter University) and the internal examiner was Claudia Wulff.
