For Visitors

Mathematical Modeling and Applications is a discipline for understanding phenomena around us. Therefore, the research topics include various phenomena we encounter in our everyday lives such as formation of animal and plant patterns, uncertainty of economics, traffic congestion and optical illusion. We try to present our research contents and results in easy language as much as possible, hoping that this new area of mathematical modeling and applications will become popular.

"Self-organization and complexity:
The origin of macroscopic order from
microscopic processes"

Oliver Steinbock

(Florida State University, USA)
 ※ The lecture will be held in English.


 Simple rules can create complex patterns and dynamics. This connection is routinely used by living systems to create complex rhythms, spatio-temporal structures, and high-performance materials with design features at meso- and macroscopic length scales that seem to defy their molecular origins. In my lecture, I will present several examples that illustrate this point and demonstrate that many phenomena that appear to be unique to life processes actually occur in non-biological, often simple chemical systems. Specifically, I will discuss nonlinear wave patterns in reaction-diffusion media and examples of life-like structures in chemical reactions that form polycrystalline or amorphous solids. The unexpectedness of some of these universalities has profound consequences in a wide range of scientific disciplines ranging from the misidentification of early microfossils to deadly cardiac arrhythmias.

"Moduli of vector bundles on
 compact Riemann surfaces."

M.S.NARASIMHAN

(Indian Institute of Science and TIFR Centre ,Bangalore)
 ※ The lecture will be held in English.


 The theory of holomorphic vector bundles on a compact Riemann surface is a vast "non-abelian" generalisation of the classical theory of the Jacobian (or Albanese) variety. The Jacobian, a complex torus, arose in the work of Abel, Jacobi and Riemann on abelian integrals on compact Riemann surfaces. The non-abelian generalisation is achieved by replacing the homology group by the fundamental group of the surface and considering unitary representations of the fundamental group.

 In this talk I will give an overview of some aspects of the subject.


Some of the topics to be dealt with are:

  • *Algebro-geometric notions of stability of vector bundles and moduli spaces and relationship with unitary representations of the fundamental group.
  • *Relation to Yang-Mills and conformal field theories in theoretical physics.

"Propagation in non homogeneous media and applications"

Henri Berestycki

(EHESS, France)

 I will start by describing reaction-diffusion phenomena and reviewing the classical theory for homogeneous Fisher and Kolmogorov-Petrovsky-Piskunov (KPP) equations. It derives the spreading properties in a homogeneous setting. A well known invasion speed governs the asymptotic speed of propagation. This equation plays an important role in a variety of contexts in ecology, biology and physics.
 In applications, it is particularly important to understand the effects of heterogeneity and I will present some motivation. In this lecture, I will focus on the effect of inclusion of a line (a “road”) with fast diffusion on biological invasions in the plane (the “field”), otherwise homogeneous. I will describe in detail the effect of the road on the speed of invasion as well as the effects of other factors. The results shed light on oriented diffusion in an excitable medium. I report here on results from a series of joint works with Jean-Michel Roquejoffre and Luca Rossi.
