LMS/IMA Joint Meeting – Mathematics of Planet Earth

The University of Reading is hosting the LMA-IMA (London Mathematics Society and Institute of Mathematics and its Applications) Joint Meeting, this year themed on the Mathematics of Planet Earth. Further information:

Following the international programme MPE2013, the research agenda of Mathematics of Planet Earth has gained more and more relevance within Mathematics as well as at the interface(s) between Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, and, obviously, Geosciences. But, indeed, related interdisciplinary exchanges have already a long of success in areas such as fractal geometry, chaos theory, stochastic and deterministic dynamical systems, partial differential equations, numerics, and extreme value theory, among others. The goal of this joint LMS-IMA meeting is to showcase some recent developments in pure and applied mathematics that contribute to a better understanding of the Planet Earth. Please note that this meeting is free to attend, however the Conference Dinner is an additional £40.

Keynote Speakers:

Peter Ashwin (University of Exeter)
Michael Ghil (UCLA and Ecole Normale Superieure)
Tobias Kuna (University of Reading)
