We announce with regret that Dr Jack Cohen died on 6th May 2019 at the age of 85. Jack was a joint Consultant to the Mathematics Institute and Ecosystems Analysis and Epidemiology Unit in the Biology Department of Warwick University from 1996-2000, and an Honorary Professor in the Mathematics Department.
HetSys is an entirely new EPSRC-supported Centre for Doctoral Training spread across 5 academic departments including Mathematics. It is recruiting enthusiastic students (first intake October 2019) from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. By developing these skills HetSys will train people to challenge current state-of-the-art in computational modelling of heterogeneous, ‘real world’ systems across a range of research themes such as nanoscale devices, new catalysts, superalloys, smart fluids, laser-plasma interactions, underpinned by research into the mathematical foundations of the associated computational models.
We are delighted to announce a new EPSRC-funded phase of the Mathematics for Real-World Systems Centre for Doctoral Training. Over the next decade we will train fifty PhD students in the advanced quantitative skills and applied mathematical modelling critical to address contemporary challenges arising from biomedicine and health sectors, modern industry and the digital economy. MathSys II builds on the highly successful and inter-disciplinary MathSys CDT. Our second phase will focus on two cross-cutting methodological themes that are central to complex multi-scale systems prediction: modelling across spatial and temporal scales; and hybrid modelling integrating complex data and mechanistic models
We announce with regret that Professor Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer FRS died aged 91 on 26th December 2018. Peter held a Warwick honorary degree and was Honorary Professor at Warwick since 2001.
Professor Jeremy Gray awarded the LMS Hirst Prize and will be invited to give the associated HIRST LECTURESHIP for his research and books on the history of mathematics, especially differential equations and geometry in and around the nineteenth century.
Dr Filip Rindler has been awarded an LMS Whitehead Prize for his solutions to fundamental problems on the border between the theory of partial differential equations, calculus of variations and geometric measure theory.
Professor Karen Vogtmann has been awarded the LMS Polya Prize for her profound and pioneering work in Geometric Group Theory, particularly the study of automorphism groups of free groups.
Andrea Mondino has been awarded the Bartolozzi Prize by the Italian Union of Mathematics.
Andrea was awarded the prize for his article Sharp and rigid isoperimetric inequalities in metric-measure spaces with lower Ricci curvature bounds (with Fabio Cavalletti), published in Inventiones Mathematicae (2017).
Hendrik Weber has been awarded a Philip Leverhulme prize for 2017.
Professor Karen Vogtmann has been awarded a honorary doctorate upon the recommendation of the University of Copenhagen’s Department of Mathematical Sciences.
