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 24th at 5.30pm in the Lecture Theatre 5.10 at the Bayes Centre, open to anyone. See the schedule below for title and abstract.
