Professor Javier Rosenblueth visits the University of Bath from IIMAS during the academic year 2019-2020. He will carry out research on optimality conditions for optimal control problems by developing a theory of augmentability. Optimal control problems are studied by several members of the department (not only in the Mathematical Control Theory group to which the host belongs, but also in the Mathematical Biology group and in the Calculus of Variations group). Professor Rosenblueth will contribute to the weekly seminars in Control Theory and in Analysis.


5th August 2019

During the week of 5th August 2019, the first ITT organised in Mexico will take place in collaboration with Bath academics via the BUC network.

The industrial interactive Integrative Think Tank workshop was conceived of as a reserach training tool at the doctoral training centre SAMBa in Bath. Thanks to the close collaboration between Bath, UNAM and CIMAT, this model will be imported to Mexico and trailled for the first time at the BUC ITT. The ITT is an opportunity for mathematicians to work with industrial partners to develop new and co-owned research questions that have a tangeable future.

There were three external partners present at the ITT: CENAPRED, CMB and Samsung.  Shortly after the ITT, CIMAT were invited to sign an agreement to collaborate further with CMB; see here.

30th October 2018

Ramses Mena (UNAM) has been awarded the University of Bath Global Chair for the academic year 2018-2019. He will make three extended visits to Bath.

23-Nov-2018 to  14-Dec-2018

9-Jan-2019 to 7–Feb-2019  (29 days)

25-May-2019 to 21-Jun-2019 (27 days)

During this period he will deliver specialist lectures to SAMba students, assist with ITT11, in particular on catstrophe modelling, as well as use the opportunity to develop the first BUC-ITT in the summer of 2019 in Mexico.

Prof. Mena's inaugural lecture is given on the 30th November 2018 and titled "Statistical Methods for Disaster Risk Assessment"

1st October 2018

Juan Carlos Pardo has been awarded the 2018-2019 David Parkin visiting professorship at the University of Bath. During his time in Bath, he will deliver a graduate course and engage in collaborative research with members of Prob-L@B. Together with Kyprianou, he will work on completing their book "Stable Levy processes via the Lamperti-tye representations"

His inaugural lecture took place on 1st October with the title "stochastic population dynamics: an overview"

30th September 2018
Apala Majumdar was awarded a QJMAM (Quarterly Journal of Mathematics and Applied Mechanics) grant in August 2018 to fund a two-week visit to UNAM in Mexico, to work with Dr Carlos Garcia-Azpeitia and Dr Panos Panayotaros on the modelling of nematic-smectic transitions in shells or structural transitions in shells filled with liquid crystalline material. This will complement Apala's work on shell problems, with leading experimentalists in Europe. Apala met her collaborators at UNAM during a BUC workshop in May 2017 and has been in scientific contact with them since the BUC workshop. These collaborations will be further strengthened via the new Bath-Chile-Mexico network.

18th August 2018

The University of Bath has approved funding for two more BUC events. This is part of a package of funding for five workshops that will take place in Bath, Mexico and Chile. In addition to the two Mexican BUC workshops, two more will take place in Chile and one in Bath. The basis of the funding is to develop the BUC concept further with Chilean partners and to cross-fertilise some of the collaboration.

The University of Bath has won funding from the recently launched £118m Rutherford Fund, which aims to attract global talent and strengthen the UK's research base. The £2.25m Rutherford Fund Strategic Partner Grants support the development of strategic university partnerships by fostering stronger links between future research leaders and the UK research community.

The Univeristy of Bath welcomes Postdoctoral Fellows:

Dr Luis Silva (UNAM) and Dr Kirill Cherednichenko (UoB) have been awarded a 2-year Newton Mobility Grant for the project "Homogenisation of degenerate equations and scattering for new materials". The research aims of the project include the development of new operator-theoretic techniques for the analysis of differential equations with non-constant coefficients at the terms with derivatives and developing a new community working on the interface between functional analysis and asymptotic analysis of parameter-dependent differential equations.

"During the last two years, researchers from the Department of Mathematical Sciences and SAMBa have been growing collaborative activities with academic institutions in Mexico, particularly Universidad Autónoma de México UNAM and Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas (CIMAT)."
