*Raul Tempone - King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia*

We will first recall, for a general audience, the use of Monte Carlo and Multi-level Monte Carlo (MLMC) methods. Then, we will discuss recent developments on MLMC. Later, we will describe and...

*Jan Tuitman - KU Leuven*

Over the past years I have developed an algorithm for computing zeta functions of algebraic curves over finite fields using p-adic cohomology. However, the input to this algorithm is not the curve...

*Prof. Stefan Siegmund - Dresden University of Technology, Germany*

Bone remodeling is a lifelong process where mature bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and new bone tissue is formed. These processes also control the reshaping or replacement of bone following...

*Juan G. Criado del Rey - University of Cantabria*

Distributing points on spheres or other sets is a very classical problem. Its modern formulation in terms of energy-minimising configurations is due to the discoverer of the electron J. J. Thomson...

*Prof. Giulio Casati - Center for Complex Systems, Como-Italy*

Providing a sustainable supply of energy to the world’s population will become a major societal problem for the 21st century as fossil fuel supplies decrease and world demand and environmental...

*Dietmar Bisch - Vanderbilt University*

An inclusion of certain algebras of operators on Hilbert sapce is called a subfactor. It is a mathematical object with an extremely interesting representation theory that is similar in many ways to...

*Dr Jonathan Kress - Director of First Year, School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW*

Turnitin is a service which has been integrated into Moodle and is a means of having electronic submission and storage of assignments, plagiarism checks, and online grading etc. in this workshop/...

*Dr. Alexander Litvinenko - King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia*

This talk consists of two parts. In the first part we use low-rank tensor methods to solve elliptic PDE with uncertain coefficients. We will start with discretization, applying Karhunen-Loeve...

*Quanshui Wu - Fudan University*

I will talk about Poisson cohomology and Batlin-Vilkovisky algebra structure on it, in contrast Hochschild cohomology. I will concentrate on the Frobenius case after the introduction part.

*Kwok-kun Kwong - National Cheng Kung University*

The well-known Alexandrov theorem states that the only closed embedded surfaces with constant mean curvature in Euclidean space are the round spheres. There are many generalizations, commonly known...
