Subject: Tsunami simulations

We have created a web page displaying some preliminary results and
ongoing work on numerical simulations of the catastrophic tsunami of
March 11:

We are attempting to also post the code used for these simulations in
a timely manner, to encourage feedback from the community and to aid
those who wish to use our software for related computations.

For those interested in learning more about the finite volume and
adaptive mesh refinement algorithms used, a preprint is also available
of an article to appear in the next issue of Acta Numerica.

Subject: Matlab Approach Comp Harmonic Analysis, Germany, Aug 2011

Hands-on workshop: Macha11
1st Workshop: A Matlab Approach to Computational Harmonic Analysis
August, 22-26, 2011
Philipps-University Marburg

The deadline for registration is August the 5th, 2011.

Macha11 is a hands-on workshop geared at graduate and PhD students
from allover the world, with a little bit of experience and background
Application oriented Harmonic Analysis is a flourishing field of
analysis, connecting hard analysis with questions of signal
processing, physics, image analysis and other applied areas. It has
become more and more important and an eminent source of inspiration
(and experimentation) to study various natural (and often new)
mathematical questions by setting up a corresponding MATLAB
simulation. Although doing some simple numerical experiments is easy
to do once a basic knowledge of programming has been achieved, a
reliable and systematic work requires a sound basis for such
experiments to be meaningful.
The NuHAG team has been using MATLAB by now for more than 20 years,
and has established a rich collection of MATLAB tools, already
organized in an open way (accessible via the NuHAG MATLAB modules).
The Marburg team has been developing wavelet software in MATLAB and
C++ for more than 5 years now. Parts of the library are currently
being worked into a publicly available MATLAB package. Learning how
to make use of these existing tools is the main goal of the workshop,
which however should at the end encourage the participants to make
their own explorative investigations (leading to an enrichment of the
collection of available code).

The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
The Mathematics of the Climate System
University of Reading, UK, 12-15 September 2011

This conference will be about the construction and use of mathematical
models of the climate system. Such models aid our understanding of
how certain climate processes interact. Finally, they provide readily
understandable paradigms for dynamical climate-system behaviour. The
conference will focus on three topics:
1) the extraction of mathematical models from climate data and
climate-model output (homogenisation, stochastic model reduction,
bistability and metastable states, low frequency variability,
data-driven coarse-graining, set-oriented methods, trend
identification, time-series analysis);
2) reduced models and their dynamics (linear response theory,
bifurcations, extreme events, uncertainty); and
3) testing hypotheses about the climate system using statistical
frameworks (emulators, Bayesian methods, nonparametric methods,

Papers will be accepted for the conference based on a 100-200 word
abstract. Abstracts should be submitted by 6 May 2011 either online

Subject: 2 PhD Positions in Computational Biology, UK

The School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University
invites applications from candidates for two PhD studentships. Funding
is for 3 years and will pay UK/EU fees and provide a maintenance
stipend linked to the RCUK rate (currently =C2=A313,590 per annum) for up
to three years. Applications from non-EU students are welcome, but a
successful candidate would be responsible for paying the difference
between non-EU and UK/EU fees.

The subject of the projects are:


Multiple cortical regions of the ventral visual pathway represent
sites of processing for low-, mid- and high-level vision. Low-level
vision involves the processing of images for simple features such as
orientation, and occurs in the primary visual cortex. High-level
vision involves the processing of complex visual features including
faces and objects and occurs in the perirhinal cortex and
elsewhere. What is poorly understood is how brain signals are
transformed during low- and high-level vision. The aim is TO use
computational neuroscience approaches such as graph theory and
modelling to analyse the neural connectivity and organisation of the
ventral visual pathway.

For informal enquiries about the studentship, please contact Dr Chris
Tinsley =E2=80=93


The potential benefits of a network-based approach to human disease
are enormous. Identifying disease genes and disease pathways is a
crucial step towards improving specificity and identifying more
accurate drug targets. The development of new computational tools for
distinguishing these disease genes and molecules from their ordinary
counterpart=E2=80=99s is thus of paramount importance. This project address=
shortcomings in current network models of metabolism, taking into
account frequently ignored but relevant biological and chemical
constraints. Additionally, innovative network measures developed in
this project will potentially lead to improved connectivity based
biomarkers, thus enabling a fuller understanding of the processes of
degeneration and adaptation in these, and other, disease networks.

For informal enquiries about the studentship, please contact Dr
Jonathan Crofts =E2=80=93

Both projects require a highly motivated individual with experience,
or an interest in biology and a training in mathematical modelling and
computer simulation as demonstrated by a 1st or upper 2nd class
honours degree, preferable a four year degree or an MSc or Master
degree, in a relevant subject area. He/she should communicate easily
in English, both verbally and in writing.
