We are a friendly department of academic staff, research staff, tutors and administrators.
Carina Dunlop visited the Department of Mathematics at the University of Portsmouth yesterday (Wednesday 21 February) to give a talk in their Mathematics Seminar Series. The title of her talk was “Mechanical models for cell and tissue mechanotransduction“. The abstract follows similar lines to her recent talks at Oxford (link here) and Southampton (link here).
Jan Gutowski is visiting the Department of Mathematics at King’s College London today (Wednesday 14 February), and giving a talk in the Triangle Seminar Series on “Highly supersymmetric AdS solutions“. Anti-de-Sitter solutions play an important role in the gauge-theory/gravity correspondence, and understanding their properties has provided important insights into the dual field theories. In the talk, Jan considers ADS solutions which are highly supersymmetric, in the sense that they preserve more than 16 supersymmetries, and he shows how modified versions of the homogeneity theorems of Figureoa-O’Farrill, combined with aspects of the global properties of the geometries, can be used to classify these solutions.
The paper “q-Poincare invariance of the AdS-3/CFT-2 R-matrix” co-authored by Riccardo Borsato (Nordita-Sweden), Surrey PhD student Joakim Strömwall and Alessandro Torrielli has been accepted for publication in Physical Review E. The final form preprint is available for downloading here.
UK Success Stories in Industrial Mathematics features case studies of 37 mathematicians playing a role in the performance of businesses, including increased output, productivity and profit.
New research in the journal Science of the Total Environment has highlighted the dangerous effects of indoor pollution on human health, and has called for policies to ensure closer monitoring of air quality.
I enjoyed doing the project a lot, it is a very relaxed working environment and there was a lot of flexibility for me to investigate the areas of the project that I found most interesting.
