El Departamento de Informática de la Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María tiene el agrado de invitar a la comunidad Universitaria a su ciclo de coloquios. El próximo *jueves 11 de Octubre*, a las 12:00 hrs., Maria Emelianenko nos presentará una charla titulada “The role of PDEs and integro – differential equations in biomedical and materials models”. El coloquio se realizará en la sala F-106 del Campus Casa Central.
¡Quedan todos cordialmente invitados!
The talk will survey some recent theoretical developments in the realm of random walks and generalized master equations, and draw connections between their materials science and biomedical applications. In particular, the presentation will focus on: (1) recent advances in modeling coarsening of materials microstructures, where distributions of misorientations, their steady-states and their time evolution may be inferred from generalized master equations, and (2) new applications of this theory to malaria transmission problem, where antibody levels in blood may be modeled via a similar continuous time jump process, presenting new pathways for understanding disease progression. Results of numerical experiments will be provided to demonstrate the use of this methodology in both contexts.
Dr. Emelianenko is a Professor at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, at George Mason University, Fairfax, VA, USA. She obtained her Ph.D. degree from Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA, in Mathematics with a Minor in High Performance Computing. She has had several Visiting Positions, which include: University of California Los Angeles, IPAM, Los Angeles, CA; Park City Mathematics Institute, Park City, UT; and Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ. She has served as Dean’s Fellow of the College of Science at George Mason University. Her research interests include Numerical methods and applied PDE, modeling of nonlinear systems, multigrid methods, optimization, stochastic processes, applications to materials science, physics and biology.
