- Phil Holmes 60th birthday workshop.
To celebrate his scientific achievements, a two-day
workshop in his honour is to be held October 15-16 at the Centre de
Recherches Mathématiques in Montréal.
More information on this workshop will come later.
MSc in Space Technology and Planetary Exploration
University of Surrey
Dr. Rainer Hollerbach
has been appointed to
a Readership in Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics
at the University of Leeds.
Dr. Alexei Likhtman
has been appointed to an Academic Fellowship at
the University of Leeds.
Jonathan Bevan has been appointed to an Academic Fellowship at
the University of Surrey. He was awarded
MMath and DPhil degrees from Oxford and is currently an EPSRC
Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Oxford. Jonathan's research interests
are in the area of the calculus of variations with particular interest
in polyconvex functions and the regularity properties of minimizers of
a class of functionals which have applications to elasticity
Vincent Naudot has been appointed as a postdoctoral researcher
at the Mathematics institute, University of Warwick from May 1st 2005.
He works with Vassili Gelfreich on the project "Asymptotic beyond all
orders and Stokes phenomenon in bifurcation problems"
(http://www.maths.warwick.ac.uk/~gelf/). Vincent graduated from Dijon
University (France) in 1991 and got a PhD from the same University
(under supervision of Robert ROUSSARIE) in 1996. Vincent spent 3
years at Kyoto University and the National Astronomical Observatory in
Tokyo, Japan, and after that 4 years at the RUG-Groningen in the
Netherlands. Vincent's interests include Dynamical systems, chaos,
homoclinic bifurcation, strange attractors, normal form theory, KAM
theory, algorithmic. He has also recently a keen interest in
mathematical modelling in ecology.
- Professor Polina Landa, Moscow State University, will
be a Royal Society visiting research fellow at Lancaster University
during 15 May - 13 August 2005. She will be working on the
mathematical connections between stochastic resonance and vibrational
