BUC Integrative Think Tank

The industrial interactive Integrative Think Tank workshop was conceived of as a reserach training tool at the doctoral training centre SAMBa in Bath. Thanks to the close collaboration between Bath, UNAM and CIMAT, this model will be imported to Mexico and trailled for the first time at the BUC ITT. The ITT is an opportunity for mathematicians to work with industrial partners to develop new and co-owned research questions that have a tangeable future.

"Resonant" media: wave scattering phenomena under strong length-scale interactions (UNAM)

The meeting will cover a range of topics concerning length-scale interaction phenomena in heterogeneous media.

Function spaces meet materials science: recent developments in spectral theory and scattering (CIMAT)

The meeting will feature talks highlighting recent progress in the analysis of PDEs and operators of mathematical physics by members of the mathematics departments of the three founding institutions of the series: University of Bath, CIMAT, and UNAM. The goals of the meeting are: a) to give a summary of the progress since the previous BUC in applied analysis in March 2018; b) to introduce new participants of the series to the relevant mathematical background; c) to develop a strategy for the future work and identify potentially fruitful ideas for widening the scope of the existing activity.

Probability challenges (CIMAT)

The BUC will centre around a collection of short courses earlier in the week. During the short courses, some tractable problems will be offered to PhD students who will be given until the end of the week to solve them as a way of becoming familiar with the material and literature presented.

Guanajuato Uncertainty Quantification “GUQ” (CIMAT)

This workshop aim is to bring together researchers of applied mathematics to show advances on uncertainty quantification of nonlinear dynamical systems. Uncertainty quantification encompasses methods to account for a cascade of errors arising while observing, modeling and discretizing physical models. We are interested on both, forward propagation of uncertainty as well as inverse assessment of model and parameter uncertainty.

Asymptotic and operator-theoretic techniques for the analysis of time-dispersive media (Bath)

The workshop will focus on the recent work of the Applied Analysis group at Bath and Theoreical Physics group at IIMAS, Mexico, on the development of functional models and the construction of scattering theory for differential operators dscribing the behaviour of periodic composite media.

Applied Analysis of Operators, PDE, Functionals (IIMAS-UNAM & Mérida)

The event is a research workshop in Mérida on 27 November -- 3 December 2017. The workshop will consist of several collaborative sessions and continues a series of mathematical research activities organised in Analysis. Also in the spirit of the BUC resaerch platform, this even is a smaller and more focused interaction strongly focused on driving towards publishable resaerch.

Air Quality and Health: a global issue with local challenges (UNAM)

This BUC will look at the increasingly dominant environmental topic of air quality and its health implications. BUC-X will consist of three parts. The first part will be a problem formulation sessions run in the style of the Bath-CDT SAMBa Integrative Think Tank. The second part is a course dediated to the data science of air quality and health. The third part is the BUC signature PhD min-conference for to ensure mixing of graduate students. With the recent move of Prof. Gavin Shaddick, this BUC introduces a new partner to the BUC research platform: Exeter University.

Branching processes and related topics (CIMAT)

This meeting will focus on recent developments in classical (spatial) branching processes with a strong focus on problems currently under consdieration by young researchers currently entering the field.

This meeting has been delayed until December 2017 due to last minute issues.

New date: 11th-15th December 2017

Stochastic Optimal Control (CIMAT)

The aim of the workshop is to encourage collaboration and new problems between academic researchers in Bath, UNAM and CIMAT, and we plan to have a mix of introductory lectures, seminars and open problem sessions, with time to develop team working on problems provided by the workshop participants.
