Infinite Dimensional Dynamical Systems in the Applied Sciences

Workshop on

Infinite Dimensional Dynamical Systems in the Applied Sciences

University of Stirling, 13-14 December 2013


A significant number of interesting problems arising in the applied sciences (biology, chemistry, engineering, physics) can be modelled and analysed using infinite dimensional dynamical systems (delay equations, integral equations, partial differential equations, to name a few). Examples include the integro-differential equations arising in coagulation-fragmentation processes or parabolic/hyperbolic partial differential equations arising in transport processes in biology. The mathematical analysis of these infinite dimensional dynamical systems has to be tailored towards the actual scientific question to be answered. This often makes the solution, be it analytical or numerical, challenging. We aim to bring together researchers to discuss recent developments in a diverse field of applications of infinite dimensional dynamical systems.

Directions & Accommodation

The workshop will be held in room 2A54 of the Cottrell Building at the University of Stirling.

The campus of the University of Stirling is just outside the city of Stirling.
Detailed information about how to reach the campus can be found here .

If you are traveling by public transport, perhaps the best option is to reach Stirling by train or bus, and then get either a bus or a taxi to the campus.
If you are travelling by car, follow the driving directions in the web page above. If possible, park in the parking lot next to the Cottrell Building, opposite Queen's Court.

There is a large number of B&B's available in and around Stirling, many of which are located on Causewayhead road, which is just a 10-15 minutes walk to campus. You can find some for example here.
