Networks of interacting oscillatory units are abundant in nature and technology. There is a PhD studentship available to understand how the interactions between individual units shape the overall network dynamics. The studentship covers all fees and includes a stipend for living expenses. Deadline is Nov 30, 2018; click here to apply.
Pedro Peres, a PhD student within the Centre, has recently produced a short YouTube video that illustrates some aspects of the dynamics of a piecewise isometry that he has been studying as part of his reseach. You can find more about his work on the mathematics of this system in https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.00245.
There are a number of EPSRC-funded PhD studentships available within the Centre for Systems Dynamics and Control: these include the following which offer full funding to UK students and fees-only to EU students non-resident in the UK. The deadline for applications for the following is 10th January 2018:
- Cortical Network Models to Understand Differential Input Response Properties During Active and Silent States – Mathematics – EPSRC DTP funded PhD Studentship
- Critical Cascades of Fast-slow Dynamical Systems – Mathematics – EPSRC DTP funded PhD Studentship
- Understanding Extremal Processes in Dynamical Systems – Mathematics – EPSRC DTP funded PhD Studentship
- Understanding Extremes in Low Dimensional Dynamical System Weather Models – Mathematics – EPSRC DTP funded PhD Studentship
We are pleased to announce the second one-day study in Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems to be held at the University of Exeter on 17th November 2017. If you have any enquiries please ask .
Dr. Jimmy Tseng has joined us as a new member of academic staff. His research focuses on homogeneous dynamics, ergodic theory, number theory (especially Diophantine approximation), geometry, and the interactions of these fields. He has previously held teaching and research positions at the University of Bristol, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Ohio State University.
This workshop will take place at the University of Exeter on Friday 24th November 2017
Networks are a highly topical subject for mathematical research in dynamical systems, where new challenges are being addressed, new methodologies developed and surprising connections uncovered. The workshop will discuss recent research on the mathematical and computational modelling of neural-inspired dynamic networks, as well as exploring connections to clinical-facing research.
