Two papers of Sergey Zelik on Navier-Stokes equations appear in Physica D

Two papers by Sergey Zelik and co-authors on rigorous analysis of the Navier-Stokes equations have been published in a special issue of Physica D (link here). The first paper (link here) is “Vanishing viscosity limit for global attractors for the damped Navier–Stokes system with stress free boundary conditions” co-authored with V. Chepyzhov (IITP, Moscow) and […]

Ian Roulstone speaks at Hamiltonian PDEs conference in Italy

Ian Roulstone is visiting the mathematics department at the University of Milano-Bicocca this week (25-27 June) to speak at the conference on “Hamiltonian PDEs: Models and Applications” (link here). Ian is giving a talk on the geometry of the Monge-Ampere equations.  While there Ian will meet with Professor Andrea Biondi, vice-Provost at the university, to […]

Paper of Jock McOrist on heterotic vacua published in LMP

The paper “On the effective field theory of heterotic vacua“, by Jock McOrist, has been published in Letters in Mathematical Physics.  The effective field theory of heterotic vacua that realise R(3,1) preserving N=1 supersymmetry is studied. In a previous paper the kinetic terms for moduli were calculated, deducing the moduli metric and Kähler potential. In […]

The Department hosts visitors from Colorado, Michigan and Moscow this week

The Department hosted three international visitors this week (18-22 June).  Professor Cecilia Diniz Behn (Colorado School of Mines) visited the MoLSS & SSRC groups and gave a talk on Monday on “What time do you have? Modeling interindividual variability in the human circadian system“.  Professor Victoria Booth (University of Michigan) visited the MoLSS and SSRC […]

Aston, Bailey, and Skeldon speak at dynamical systems conference in Bristol

Philip Aston, Matthew Bailey, and Anne Skeldon attended and gave talks at the conference “Advances in Nonsmooth Dynamics“ held at the University of Bristol 13-15 June. Philip spoke on “Dimer dynamics and degenerate transversally intersecting manifolds“; Matthew spoke on “Circle maps with gaps: the dynamics of the two process model for sleep/wake regulation“; and Anne […]
