Registration open for São Paulo School of Advanced Science on stochastic partial differential equations

February 26, 2020

Agência FAPESP – Stock market swings, exchange-rate fluctuations, changes in Earth’s magnetic field and variations in the brain’s electrical potential recorded by a EEG machine all have in common the fact that they are stochastic processes – sets of random variables representing the evolution of a system over time. 

The scientific community involved in the study of stochastic processes has spent years building tools to deal with stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs), which are partial differential equations containing a random term, also called noise. Progress in the area has led to the development of solutions to problems that seemed out of reach, and a wide array of applications is now in range. 

Experts in this knowledge area from around the world will assemble on July 28-August 8, 2020, at the University of Campinas’s Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computation (IMECC-UNICAMP) in São Paulo State, Brazil, for the São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Singular Stochastic Partial Differential Equations and their Applications. The event is being organized by Professor Christian Horácio Olivera and is supported by FAPESP.

The School will be divided into two parts. In the first week there will be two introductory mini-courses that will lay the foundations for the second week, in which the participants will learn about the latest theories and developments. To round up the program there will also be talks by invited researchers, poster sessions, and a visit to the National Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS) at the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) in Campinas. 

The lecturers include Xue-Mei Li and Ajay Chandra of Imperial College London (UK), Giuseppe Cannizzaro of the University of Warwick (UK), Sandra Cerrai of the University of Maryland (USA), Konstantin Matetski of Columbia University (USA), Marielle Simon of the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA Lille), Soledad Torres of the University of Valparaíso (Chile), Manuel Cabezas of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Patrícia Gonçalves of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Claudio Landim of the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IMPA, Brazil), Renato Fontes of the University of São Paulo (USP, Brazil), and Constantino Tsallis of the Brazilian Center for Physical Research (CBPF).

The organizers will select 100 participants, 50 from all parts of Brazil and 50 from abroad. Air fares, medical insurance, accommodation and meals during the two-week School will be funded by FAPESP. Undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students from all countries have until March 28, 2020, to apply. Preference will be given to students able to participate in the full two weeks.
