Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics and the Theory of Extreme Events in Earth Science

29th October 2013 to 1st November 2013

Organisers: Valerio Lucarini (Hamburg / Reading) and Sandro Vaienti (Centre de Physique Théorique, Marseille)

Workshop Theme

Contributions to the workshop are encouraged in relevant areas and e.g. in the following topics: large deviation theory, extreme value theory, dynamical systems, bifurcations, chaos, predictability, Lyapunov exponents and vectors, data assimilation, multifractal properties of fluid flows, long-term memory, turbulence, stochastic processes, response theory for non-equilibrium systems.

This event will hopefully give impetus for extending the collaboration between meteorologists, climate scientists, physicists, and mathematicians.
