AMMP Day 2014

As the autumn term is winding down why not come and join us for a get together just before the seasonal break. We have organised 7 talks from late stage PhD students within the AMMP section of the Department of Mathematics on various different topics. We are also happy to announce that this year’s plenary speaker will be Prof. Richard Craster who will be talking about “Homogenisation of Multiscale Media for Wave Problems”.

There will be a prize for the best talk by a PhD student as well as some Christmas treats for all. Lunch and refreshments will be provided to those who attend.

Registration for the event can be done here. For further details, the full schedule can be found here.

The event will begin at 12:15 on 10/12/2014 in room 308 of the Huxley building.

We hope to see many of you there.

Welcome Event

We are happy to declare that our SIAM Student Chapter Welcome Event for the new intake of PhD Students was a resounding success. With many new and old students it was a great chance to get to know each other and network before the term starts, not to mention a great opportunity to let everyone know what we have planned for the next semester. Thanks for everyone who turned up!

Launch Event.. Success!

We are happy to announce that our SIAM Student Chapter Launch Event was a great hit. Many enthusiastic mathematicians enjoyed a set of fantastic talks from a wide-range of subjects and shared quite a few stories over some drinks and snacks afterwards. We would like to thank our speakers and everyone involved for their support and making the launch event such a success!

Dean Bodenham (Statistics):
Multivariate Changepoint Detection in Streaming Data

Pablo Crotti (Biomathematics):
A Journey through Cell Cycle Variability and its Consequences on Bacterial Growth

Michael Schaub (Complex Networks):
Unravelling Complex Networks under the Prism of Dynamical Processes
