Entrance hall of the ICMS Workshop

Joint CDT Colloquium

Apr 18, 2017 - Apr 21, 2017

15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA

This Joint CDT Colloquium has been organised by:
Tim Hurst, Anton Martinsson, Razvan Mosincat, Jenovah Rodrigues (University of Edinburgh, MIGSAA)  

 

This is a student led colloquium, hosted by the Maxwell Institute Graduate School for Analysis and its Applications (MIGSAA). The colloquium brings together students from four mathematical Centres for Doctoral Training. The attending CDTs are:

Cambridge Centre for Analysis (CCA)
Maxwell Institute Graduate School for Analysis and its Applications (MIGSAA)
Oxford Centre for Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations (OxPDE)
Warwick Mathematics and Statistics Centre for Doctoral Training (MASDOC)

 

The colloquium consists of two mini-courses, presented by Ruslan Davidchack (Leicester) and by Gustav Holzegel (Imperial), alongside student presentations on their current research.

Mini Course 1:
Speaker: Gustav Holzegel (Imperial)
Waves on black hole geometries
We will start by considering the wave equation on flat space and remind ourselves of different analytic techniques that can be employed to capture the dispersion of waves. We will then take a more geometric viewpoint that will eventually allow us to generalise these techniques to the context of black hole spacetimes and prove global estimates on the behaviour of waves in black hole geometries. While we will motivate some of the analysis from general relativity, no prior knowledge of the subject will be assumed or necessary. (Some basic knowledge of elementary differential geometry will be helpful though.)


Mini Course 2:
Speaker: Ruslan Davidchack (Leicester)
Introduction to methods for molecular simulation
After introducing basic concepts of molecular modelling and simulation methods, I will focus on several specific topics:  1) molecular dynamics simulation and Langevin thermostats for simulating rigid molecules, 2) discretisation errors in molecular dynamics simulations with deterministic and stochastic thermostats, and 3) methods of free energy calculations.
