UT Austin|Portugal Workshop on Modeling and Simulations of Cardiovascular Diseases and Cancer

13/11/2017 — 15/11/2017

The main goal of this CoLab Workshop is to reinforce the competences of the Portuguese researchers in Computational Medicine and Biomathematics. It follows a series of events organized in the previous years devoted to this multidisciplinary research field which demands different expertise and an effective national and international collaboration between mathematicians, computational scientists, bioengineers and medical doctors, to address complex biomedical problems.

Mini-course on Entropy Methods in Particle Systems

15/11/2017 — 23/11/2017

The goal of this course by Milton Jara, IMPA, is to present the Relative-Entropy Method of Yau in the context of general continuous time Markov chains, as well as recent advances obtained in collaboration with Otávio Menezes (IST Lisbon). The course targets students at the master or PhD level, but can also be suitable for advanced undergraduate students in mathematics. The only requirement is to be acquainted with the equivalent of an introductory course on Markov chains.
