The full details are in the published paper.
]]>Tomorrow Dr Luciana Dalla Valle is presenting her research on sentiment analysis on social media (e.g. Facebook), with other colleagues from our School Dr Marco Palomino and Dr Giovanni Masala. This event was arranged by the big data group at Plymouth University.
The program for the event is here.

The mathematics of prime numbers is taught in the first year module called: Mathematical Reasoning. Apart from the fundemental aspects of prime nunber to numbers, they are crucial to crystallography, and hence are important for national security and the internet.
A brief overview of the contents of the module are:
This module introduces the basic reasoning skills needed to develop and apply mathematical ideas. Clear logical thinking is central to the understanding of mathematics. The module explores fundamental properties of prime numbers, their random generation and use in modern cryptography.

]]>This year Lauren Ansell, A PhD student in the Centre for Mathematics Sciences, presented a talk at the meeting with the title: Relativistic charge dynamics in laser field.
]]>This year there were talks on: Heavy Flavour anomalies (where there is tantalizing evidence for the failure of the standard model of particle physics), and new measurements of the cosmological parameters from large scale of surveys of the Universe. The final physics talk was by Dr. David Newbold from Bristol University, who reviwed the latest results from the LHC and the plans for the upgrade of the LHC.
