Summer School in Analysis of PDEs and Fluid Dynamics


Date: 23-26 July 2019

Location: Bayes Centre, Lecture Theatre 5.10
47 Potterrow, Edinburgh EH8 9BT, UK

Scientific Committee: Beatrice Pelloni (Heriot-Watt University), Jacques Vanneste (University of Edinburgh), Daniel Coutand (Heriot-Watt University), Mark Wilkinson (Heriot-Watt University), Stefania Lisai (Heriot-Watt University and University of Edinburgh)


The analysis of PDEs that arise in fluid dynamics, and in particular in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, has attracted the interest of the mathematical and physical communities in the past 30 years, because of the new mathematical tools that can be used to tackle them, but mostly for their applications to Meteorology and Climate Prediction. Edinburgh is a hub for this type of mathematics: following the recent confirmation of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training for Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Computation at the Maxwell Institute Graduate School (MAC-MIGS), we aim to attract many young researchers from the around the UK, Europe, and even outstanding applications from outside of Europe, and encourage collaboration and discussion between well-experienced academics and early-stage researchers.


Main speakers: Gui-Qiang G. Chen (University of Oxford), Mikhail Feldman (University of Wisconsin), Camilla Nobili (Universität Hamburg).

Invited speakers: Michele Coti Zelati (Imperial College London), Oana-Irina Pocovnicu (Heriot-Watt University), Ewelina Zatorska (UCL).

Special event: there will be a lecture by Mike Cullen (Met Office) on Wednesday 24, open to anyone. More details on this will follow soon.

Programme: PDF.

There will be a conference dinner on Thursday 25th of July.

Poster: PDF.


Registration: due to limited capacity, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. You may register your interest in attending the event by completing the registration form. Registration will be possible until we reach full capacity.

Financial support: Financial support has been allocated and we are not able to offer any more funding. We invite you to look for other sources of funding, either through your home institution or externally (for instance, EWM provides a few travel grants to female mathematicians based in EU, with deadline on the 1st of June).


Accommodation: the end of July is a very busy time in Edinburgh, as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will start on the 2nd of August. We suggest to book accommodation well in advance. Rooms can be booked in the Pollock Halls for affordable prices, but they are likely to be fully booked soon.
