Accurate answers using imprecise calculations

By Oliver Sheridan-Methven, University of Oxford Mathematical Institute, PhD in industrially focused mathematical modelling For a huge variety of tasks we require computer simulations to produce useful answers. This can be from everyday items, such as simulating weather patterns to produce the weather forecasts, to on-demand simulations of financial markets […]

PhD Vacancy: Game Theory Optimisation modelling applied to climate change questions

To answer research questions surrounding climate change, effective modelling of future energy markets is required. Such models provide insights from planning, operations and regulatory perspectives. Profit-maximising generators use them to gain insights on possible trading strategies while policy-makers use them to analyse consumer costs and carbon emissions for different proposed […]

Impact of solar activity on precipitation in the United States

For many years scientists have tried to understand the complicated mechanisms governing Earth’s climate. It is known to have always been changing under influence of multiple endogenous processes (e.g. volcanic activity) and exogenous factors (e.g. human influence). Astrophysicists hypothesise that some of the patterns noticed in climatological data can be […]

Bifurcations and destabilising feedback loops in multiple-scale switched control systems

Dynamical systems which are characterized by switchings between a number of distinct differentiable vector fields, with the switching law that depends on the value of some state variable, are common in applications. For example, some mathematical models and investgations of the character of neuromuscular control during tasks such as quiet […]

SFB Tomography across the scales: Optical Tomography of Trapped Objects

Optical and acoustical trapping has been established as a tool for holding and moving microscopic particles suspended in a liquid in a contact-free and non-invasive manner. Opposed to standard microscopic imaging where the probe is fixated, this technique allows imaging in a more natural environment. In collaboration with the the […]
