Tom Shearer -- Modelling tendon and ligament non-linear elasticity [IN PERSON]

14:00 - 15:00 30 January 2023

Join us for this seminar by Tom Shearer (Manchester) as part of the North West Seminar Series in Mathematical Biology and Data Sciences. Details of the full series can be found here https://www.cms.livjm.ac.uk/APMSeminar/ The talk will be hosted in person in the Simon Building, Room 3.62. For those who cannot attend in person the talk will also...

EUCLID: Learning constitutive models without stress data

15:00 - 16:00 31 January 2023

Note: This is a hybrid event and will be both in-person and through zoom. Abstract of the lecture: Despite the recent advances in data-driven methods, constitutive modelling of materials remains embedded in a supervised setting where the stress-strain pairs are assumed to be available. However, in most common experimental setups, it is difficult...

Manchester Algebra Seminar - Alexis Langlois-Rémillard

13:00 - 14:00 31 January 2023

Speaker: Alexis Langlois-Rémillard - U Ghent Title: Representations of the Dunkl total angular momentum algebra Abstract: The Dunkl total angular momentum algebra is the supercentraliser of the realisation of the orthosymplectic Lie superalgebra osp(1|2) present inside the tensor product of a rational Cherednik algebra and a Clifford algebra....

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Ben Ward

15:00 - 16:00 31 January 2023

Speaker: Ben Ward (University of York) Title: \psi-badly approximable points Abstract: In this talk I will discuss recent work with Henna Koivusalo, Jason Levesley, and Xintian Zhang on the set of \psi-badly approximable points. \psi-badly approximable points are those which are \psi-well approximable, but at the same time not c\psi-well approximable...

Spray coating, Stability, and Semi-transparency in Organic Photovoltaics

12:00 - 13:00 01 February 2023

Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr. Emma Spooner. Organic photovoltaics (OPVs) are a type of 3rd generation, thin film solar technology. Whilst their performance lags behind that of traditional silicon solar cells, OPVs have many advantages in niche areas, such as light weight, flexibility, low cost of manufacture, and tuneable...

Heba Sailem -- Decoding signaling and environmental components underlying tissue architecture [IN PERSON]

14:00 - 15:00 06 February 2023

Join us for this seminar by Heba Sailem (King's College London) as part of the North West Seminar Series in Mathematical Biology and Data Sciences. Details of the full series can be found here https://www.cms.livjm.ac.uk/APMSeminar/ The talk will be hosted in person in the Simon Building, Room 3.62. For those who cannot attend in person the talk...

Advances in Data Science and AI: Learning from healthcare data across domains and modalities

14:00 - 15:00 07 February 2023

The Advances in Data Science and AI seminar series showcases innovative research in data science and AI from across the world. This event is hybrid. Title: Learning from healthcare data across domains and modalities Abstract : In healthcare, we have data across domains such as multiple sites, and across modalities including medical images, multiomics,...

Speaker: Miriam Norris - Manchester Title: TBC Abstract: TBC Tea and biscuits 12:45 in the foyer

Manchester Number Theory Seminar - Hung Bui

15:00 - 16:00 07 February 2023

Speaker: Hung Bui (University of Manchester) Title: Brocard-Ramanujan's problem on polynomial-factorial equations Abstract: Brocard and Ramanujan, independently, posed the problem of finding all integer solutions to the equation n! + 1 = x^2. It is conjectured that the only solutions are n = 4,5,7. More generally, one may ask about integer solutions...
