Daniel Boutros visits from the University of Cambridge for interaction with research project of Camilla Nobili

Daniel Boutros (homepage here), currently a PhD student of Edriss Titi at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences at Cambridge, is visiting the department this week (w/c 5 December), for research interaction with Camilla Nobilii and her PhD student Johannes Benthaus. Johannes is formerly a Masters student at the Unversity of Hamburg and started his PhD […]


Paper of Anne Skeldon co-authored with Nottingham MathBio group published in Physica D

The paper “The two-process model for sleep-wake regulation: A nonsmooth dynamics perspective“, co-authored by Mustafa Sayli, Anne Skeldon, Rueiger Thula, Rachel Nicks, and Stephen Coombes. Sayli, Thlua, Nicks, and Coombes are all members of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology (link here) at the University of Nottingham. The highlights of the paper are (a) […]


Paper of Sergey Zelik published in the Journal of Differential Equations

The paper “Determining functionals and finite-dimensional reduction for dissipative PDEs revisited“, co-authored by Varga Kalantarov (Koç University, Turkey), Anna Kostianko (Imperial College London), and Sergey Zelik, has been published in the Journal of Differential Equations (link here). The paper studies the properties of linear and non-linear determining functionals for dissipative dynamical systems generated by PDEs. […]

Roberto D’Onofrio gives virtual talk in the Geometry of Differential Equations seminar in Moscow

Roberto D’Onofrio is speaking today (Wednesday 16 November) in the Geometry of Differential Equations Seminar, hosted at the Independent University of Moscow. The talk is via zoom (link to the seminar page here) and the title is “Monge-Ampère geometry and semigeostrophic equations” and the abstract is at the above link. The talk is based on […]


Invited review paper of Masanori Hanada published in the European Physical Journal

The paper “Partial deconfinement: a brief overview“, co-authored by Masanori Hanada and Hiromasa Watanabe (Kyoto University) has been published in the Special Topics section of the European Physical Journal. The confinement/deconfinement transition in gauge theory plays important roles in physics, including the description of thermal phase transitions in the dual gravitational theory. Partial deconfinement implies […]
