Abstract

The 5th Oxford Neuron and Brain Mechanics Workshop will take place on 22 and 23 March 2018, in St Hugh’s College, Oxford. The event includes international and UK speakers from a wide variety of disciplines, collectively working on Traumatic Brain Injury, Brain Mechanics and Trauma, and Neurons research.

The aim is to foster new collaborative partnerships and facilitate the dissemination of ideas from researchers in different fields related to the study of brain mechanics, including pathology, injury and healing.

Focussing on a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to aspects of brain mechanics research, the workshop will present topics from areas including Medical, Neuroimaging, Neuromechanics and mechanics, Neuroscience, Neurobiology and commercial applications within medicine.

This workshop is the latest in a series of events established by the members of the International Brain Mechanics and Trauma Lab (IBMTL) initiative *(www.brainmech.ox.ac.uk) in collaboration with St Hugh’s College, Oxford.

Speakers

Professor Lee Goldstein MD, Boston University
Professor David Sharp, Imperial College London
Dr Ari Ercole, University of Cambridge
Professor Jochen Guck, BIOTEC Dresden
Dr Elisa Figallo, Finceramica SPA
Dr Mike Jones, Cardiff University
Professor Ellen Kuhl, Stanford University
Mr Tim Lawrence, University of Oxford
Professor Zoltan Molnar, University of Oxford
Dr Fatiha Nothias, University Pierre & Marie Curie
Professor Stam Sotiropoulos, University of Nottingham
Professor Michael Sutcliffe, University of Cambridge
Professor Alain Goriely, University of Oxford

Prof. Peter Grindrod CBE
Abstract

This half-day research workshop will address issues at the intersection between network science, matrix theory and mathematical physics.

Network science is producing a wide range of challenging research problems that have diverse applications across science and engineering. It is natural to cast these research challenges in terms of matrix function theory. However, in many cases, closely related problems have been tackled by researchers working in statistical physics, notably quantum mechanics on graphs and quantum chaos. This workshop will discuss recent progress that has been made in both fields and highlight opportunities for cross-fertilization. While focusing on mathematical, physical and computational issues, some results will also be presented for real data sets of relevance to practitioners in network science.

Abstract

Over the last few decades, a number of authors have discussed the analogy between linking numbers in three manifold topology and symbols in arithmetic. This talk will outline some results that make this precise in terms of natural complexes associated to arithmetic duality theorems. In particular, we will describe a ‘finite path integral’ formula for power residue symbols.

Abstract

The 2015 Oxford Brain Mechanics Workshop 19 and 20 January, 2015 in St Hugh’s College, Oxford

Everybody is welcome to attend but (free) registration is required.

The event will include speakers from both CMU and Oxford working on Brain Mechanics and Trauma, as well as some chosen international members from the IBMTL* (www.brainmech.ox.ac.uk).

As well as focusing on various aspects of brain mechanics research, the 2015 Oxford Brain Mechanics Workshop will include the UK launch of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) – University of Oxford ‘Brain Alliance’. We are delighted that Dr Subra Suresh, President of CMU will launch the workshop, introduced by Oxford Vice-Chancellor Prof. Andrew Hamilton.

The aim of the workshop is to foster new collaborative partnerships and facilitate the dissemination of ideas from researchers in different fields related to the study of brain mechanics, including pathology, injury and healing. The IBMTL is delighted to be a global partner in CMU’s ‘BrainHub’ initiative and further extend the truly interdisciplinary, collaborative network of IBMTL and its associated researchers in Medical Sciences, Neuroscience, Biology, Engineering, Physics and Mathematics.

Abstract

The aim of this two-day workshop is to bring together mathematicians, biologists and researchers from other disciplines whose work involves stochastic and multiscale phenomenon, to identify common methodologies to studying such systems, both from a numerical and analytical perspective.   Relevant topics include asymptotic methods for PDEs; multiscale analysis of stochastic dynamical systems; mean-field limits of collective dynamics.  Numerical methods, mathematical theory and applications (with a specific focus on biology) will all be discussed.  The workshop will take place on the 1st and 2nd of September, at the Mathematical Institute, Oxford University.   Please visithttps://sites.google.com/site/stochmultiscale2014/ for more information and to register.
