EPSRC Symposium Workshop - Multiscale Systems: Theory and Applications

Monday 12 - Friday 16 December 2011

Organisers: Martin Hairer (Warwick), Grigorios Pavliotis (Imperial College), Andrew Stuart (Warwick)

Many systems exhibit structures on multiple length or time scales that are widely separated. For example, the world climate shows obvious daily and seasonal cycles, but it also changes over timescales that span several millennia. Another example is the motion of a single atom in a large molecule, which would typically show very fast oscillations, superimposed to the more interesting slow motion of the global shape of the molecule. The analysis and modelling of multiscale systems has attracted considerable attention in recent years, both from the pure and the applied mathematics communities. But despite the progress made in recent years, understanding the mathematics of multiscale systems and developing effective algorithms for their simulation remains a major challenge of modern mathematics. This workshop will provide a platform for the exchange of ideas between pure and applied mathematicians working on such multiscale problems.

Accommodation will be arranged on Campus by the Mathematics Research Centre (MRC).

Some practical details

Here is advice on how to get to Warwick University from the main UK airports.

The nearest railway station to the University is Coventry Railway Station, approximately 2.5 miles away.

Here is a map of the Warwick campus (where the Mathematics Department is in the Zeeman Building, numbered 37).

Here is some information on local buses (U1 and U2 connect Coventry-University-Leamington Spa; 12 connects Coventry-University-Kenilworth-Leamington Spa). Kenilworth is 4 miles from the University. Leamington Spa is 8 miles from the University, and has its own railway station.

The cost of parking on Campus is £3 per day.

Lectures will be in room B3.03 in the Zeeman Building (which is suitable for blackboard, OHP or computer presentations).
