End of an era and start of another. Yesterday was the graduation ceremony for our Mathematics graduates. It was good to see them again and find out about their plans. Today was also the first induction session for our new students. Teaching proper starts next Monday.
Dr Daniel Robertz is
invited to give a talk on his current research at the Kolchin Seminar in
Differential Algebra on Friday 13 September 2019.
The American mathematician Ellis R. Kolchin (1916-1991) was among the
founders of modern differential algebra and linear algebraic groups.
The Kolchin Seminar in Differential Algebras, which goes back to the
1960s, takes place at the Graduate Center of the City University of New
York and has been for decades a leading research seminar in differential
and difference algebra.
It is important that physicists do outreach, public engagement and science communication about their research. However, apart from giving popular talks about physics it is no clear what else can be done.
The RSS International Conference has established itself as the only conference in the UK for anyone interested in statistics and data science.Every year, over 600 statisticians and data scientists gather from all sectors and from over 30 countries to share information and network, attracted by a varied programme of talks and workshops.
It is a tradition for UK based graduate students researching in the area of theoretical particle physics to attend a summer school at the end of the first year. This year 49th British Universities Summer School in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics (BUSSTEPP) was held in Glasgow.
The following courses were presented over the two week period:
Advanced Topics in QFT Johannes Henn (MPI Munich)
Phenomenology : Fabio Maltoni (Louvain/Bologna)
Beyond The Standard Model : Matthew McCullough (CERN/Cambridge)
AdS/CFT : Marco Meineri (Lausanne)
Cosmology : Clare Burrage (Nottingham)
Experimental Particle Physics : Andreas Korn (UCL)
Lattice Field Theory : Biagio Lucini (Swansea)
String Phenomenology : Eran Palti (MPI Munich)
Gravitational Waves : Martin Hendry (Glasgow)
Outreach and Science in the Public: Kate Shaw (Sussex)
It is the home of our engineering disciplines, computing and mathematical sciences which together provide a vibrant inter-disciplinary and collaborative environment dedicated towards producing graduates with the necessary applied knowledge and skills to meet the demands of employers today and for tomorrow.
At the beginning of September, the ExHILP 2019 conference is being held at the University of Stanford in California. Dr. Ben King is presenting an invited talk. Dr. Thomas Heinzl is a member of the scientific advisory committee.
