  • LMS Invited Lecturer 2011
    Emmanuel Candes, Stanford
    March 21-25 2011
    Isaac Newton Institute

    The annual Invited Lecturers scheme aims to bring a distinguished overseas mathematician to the United Kingdom to present a small course of about ten lectures spread over a week. Each course of Invited Lectures is on a major field of current mathematical research, and is instructional in nature, being directed both at graduate students beginning research and at established mathematicians who wish to learn about a field outside their own research specialism.

    Emmanuel Candes will give an eight-lecture minicourse, at a level suitable for graduate students, on Compressed Sensing. This is a subject very much at the interface of pure and applied mathematics and the lectures should interest a wide audience. There will also be one-hour lectures by:

    Mike Davies (Edinburgh)
    -Compressed sensing in RF
    Anders Hansen (Cambridge)
    -Generalized sampling and infinite-dimensional compressed sensing
    Vincent Rivoirard (Paris-Dauphine)
    -The Dantzig selector for high dimensional statistical problems
    Carola Schoenlieb (Cambridge)
    -Minimisation of sparse higher-order energies for large-scale problems in imaging

  • High oscillation pervades a very wide range of applications: electromagnetics, fluid dynamics, molecular modelling, quantum chemistry, computerised tomography, plasma transport, celestial mechanics, medical imaging, signal processing. It has been addressed by a wide range of mathematical techniques, inter alia from asymptotic theory, harmonic analysis, theory of dynamical systems, theory of integrable systems and differential geometry. The computation of highly oscillatory problems spawned a large number of different numerical approaches and algorithms. The purpose of this programme is to foster research into different aspects of high oscillation – the theoretical, the computational and the applied – from a united standpoint and to promote the synergy implicit in an interdisciplinary activity.

  • Grothendieck-Teichmüller theory goes back to A. Grothendieck's celebrated Esquisse d'un programme. In 1991, V. Drinfel'd formally introduced two Grothendieck-Teichmüller groups, the former one related to the absolute Galois group and the latter one related to the deformation theory of a certain algebraic structure (braided quasi-Hopf algebra). Introduced in algebraic topology 40 years ago, the notion of operad has enjoyed a renaissance in the 90's under the work of M. Kontsevich in deformation theory. Two proofs of the deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds, one by himself as well as one by D. Tamarkin, led M. Kontsevich to conjecture an action of a Grothendieck-Teichmüller group on such deformation quantizations, thereby drawing a precise relationship between the two themes.

  • The Department has been producing graduates in the fields of Metallurgy and Materials Science since the mid 1950s. During this time the department has grown into a world-class institution for the training of materials scientists and engineers and the department is at the forefront of research into the manufacture, structure, properties and applications of materials for the benefit of the UK and world community

  • The Earth's mantle is almost entirely solid, but on geological timescales it convects vigorously, the well-known surface expression of this being plate tectonics. At depths up to ~100 km beneath plate-tectonic boundaries (mid-ocean ridges and subduction zones), and beneath ocean islands such as Hawaii, the mantle melts, and that melt rises to the surface to feed volcanism and form new crust. Such magmatism plays a key role in the chemical evolution and dynamics of our planet. Although the basic thermodynamics of melt generation in these settings is well understood, how the melt is transported to the surface is not, despite several decades of work on the problem. Furthermore, recent observational evidence suggests that mantle melting is not restricted to the near surface (top 100 km): it may occur within the mantle transition zone (410-660 km depth) and above the core-mantle boundary (2900 km). For these deeper instances of melting, an understanding of the dynamical and thermochemical characteristics is currently lacking.

    Understanding the formation and migration of melt in the mantle presents a formidable scientific and mathematical challenge. One key challenge is in bridging diverse length scales - melt lies along grain boundaries at micron scales, may focus into channels at metre scales, and migrates over 100 km. Sophisticated mathematical techniques, such as homogenisation theory, are needed to map an understanding of physics at the smallest scales to plate-tectonic scales. Seismology offers a way to image melt in the mantle, but the development of new tools in inverse theory are required to extract that information. Models of melt transport are eventually cast as a series of coupled non-linear partial differential equations, which require advanced numerical techniques to solve. This programme will bring together a broad spectrum of mathematicians and solid Earth scientists to tackle these and other fundamental challenges of melt in the mantle.

  • The I-CAMP'13 school took the form of a summit, bringing together prominent scientists as well as students and postdoctoral fellows. It provided education for young scientists working in the fields of liquid crystal materials science, optics, photonics, mathematics, biophysics, nanoscience, and related fields. The goal was to prepare the participants for research at the frontiers of science and technology by providing an interdisciplinary expert training not easily available within the traditional system of graduate education and postdoctoral apprenticeship. The meeting also explored current state and emerging new research frontiers. The focus was on recent advances at the interface between liquid crystal physics and optics that promise to open up conceptually novel directions of research. Participants working at the forefronts of materials science, nanoscience, and optics discussed the emerging uses of light for control and study of liquid crystal materials as well as the advances in the use of these materials to control light. By bringing together both prominent & junior scientists to Cambridge, I-CAMP'13 school also allowed them to combine advanced education with learning about different cultures worldwide and history of science.
