Abstract
Soliton like structures called “stable droplets” are found to exist within a paradigm reaction<br /> diffusion model which can be used to describe the patterning in a number of fish species. It is<br /> straightforward to analyse this phenomenon in the case when two non-zero stable steady states are<br /> symmetric, however the asymmetric case is more challenging. We use a recently developed<br /> perturbation technique to investigate the weakly asymmetric case.<br />

Abstract
Brownian Molecular Motors are crucial for cell motility, muscle contraction or any other mechanical task carried out by proteins. After a short introduction to protein motors, I will talk about a numerical appraoch I worked on during the last months, which should enable us to deduct properties for a broad range of protein motors. A special focus should lie on the calculation of the eigenvalue spectrum, which gives insight to motors' stability.

Abstract
The circulatory system is the most important and amongst the most complicated mechanisms in the human body. Consisting of the heart, the arteries and the veins, it is amply aided by a variety of mechanisms aiming to facilitate adequate perfusion of the body tissues at the appropriate pressure. On this talk I am focusing on the development of a computational model which relates patient specific factors (age, gender, whether someone is an athlete/smokes etc) and their effects on different vascular regions which ultimately determine the arterial pressure and the cardiac output.
