Advances in kinetic and fluid dynamics transport: Analysis and approximations
Feb 22-26, 2016, UT Austin.
ICES POB at Avaya and 6.304

The focus of this workshop is at the heart of kinetic and fluid dynamics transport modeling. These problems, all from non-linear theory, encompass both Partial and Integral Differential Equations in a subtle way. The goal is to bring together a state of the arts discussions on topics raging from recent advances on initial and boundary value problems associated with collisional theory, plasma and radiated transport, their associated to macroscopic approximations and fluid dynamics descriptions, to the actual standing analytical and computational issues for these models. This forum will focus on a balance and interplay between theory, numerics, and applications. This event is dedicated to Claude Bardos for his impact in mathematics Advances in kinetic and fluid dynamics transport: Analysis and approximations

This workshop is supported by a Ki-net grant.

The Texas Algebraic Geometry Symposium

Apr 2-3, 2016, UT Austin.

The Texas Algebraic Geometry Symposium is a joint event organized by Rice University, Texas A&M University, and the University of Texas at Austin. This conference aims to bring to a regional audience the latest developments in Algebraic Geometry, interpreted in its broadest sense.

Participants should register at the conference website; those coming from out of town may also apply there for travel support.

Alessio Figalli will receive the 2016 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Award for Science.

Decemeber 11 , 2015

The Acadamy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas has announced that Alessio Figalli is the recipient of the 2016 Edith and Peter O'Donnell Award for Science.

Quoting from the award page: "Dr. Figalli's research embraces several areas of mathematics, including partial differential equations, calculus of variations and geometric measure theory. These areas have applications to physics, biology, and economics. For instance, one of Dr. Figalli’s main focuses of research is the “optimal transport problem,” which states: given a distribution of mass, find the most efficient way to transport it from one place to another. This problem has important applications in economics, however, more recently, this problem has found new unexpected applications to other areas of mathematics, as well as biology and meteorology."
