Charlotte spent one of her undergraduate years with us in Plymouth under the Erasmus scheme and then returned last year under Erasmus Plus Traineeship, work with Luciana and Julian on the work that is reported in the poster “Using Statistical Models to Understand Child Eye Development”. Charlotte is now doing a PhD at the University of Padova,
Computer algebra is crucial to many applications in mathematics and science. At Plymouth University the students are taught and can download the Maple computer algebra system from Maplesoft. Computer algebra is also important for research into mathematics. For example, next week, Dr. Daniel Robertz from the CMS at Plymouth is participating in the conference “Applications of Computer Algebra” in Kassel, Germany.
Drs Tom Heinzl and Ben King are just back from speaking at the twenty fifth annual International Laser Physics Workshop (LPHYS’16) in Yerevan, Armenia: http://www.lasphys.com/workshops/lasphys16/program-symposium Their talks were on “Depletion of Strong Fields” and “Beyond Volkov: Solving the Second-Order Klein-Gordon Equation”
During the summer many of the research groups in the CMS have external visitors, who collaborate on research projects. This summer Andrea Baldino is visiting Dr. Julian Stander and other members of the statistics research group. Last year Andrea Baldino visited CMS funded by the Erasmus Plus Traineeship scheme.
