Infectious Dynamics of Pandemics: Mathematical and statistical challenges in understanding the dynamics of infectious disease pandemics

5th May 2020 to 18th December 2020


Due to current events, this is a virtualised programme 

Mathematical modelling has played an unprecedented role in informing public health policy on the control of the current COVID19 pandemic. Infectious disease modelling groups in the UK and globally have necessarily been working in ‘response’ mode to provide real-time modelling of the pandemic as it unfolds.

Statistical mechanics, integrability and dispersive hydrodynamics

19th October 2020 to 23rd October 2020

Workshop theme:

The overarching purpose of the workshop is  to generate new collaborations between researchers working in experimental, computational and analytical aspects of nonlinear  dispersive hydrodynamics, randomness and statistical mechanics. In particular, the workshop will focus on the growing field of integrable turbulence, which aims at combining the concepts of randomness and of integrability.
