Cars, Pedestrians and Fish as Interacting Brownian Particles

Why do traffic jams appear on a stretch of road when there’s no crash or bottleneck? Why do fish decide to swim in the same direction? This talk will give an overview on the work I’ve been doing on stochastic interacting particle systems. We’ll see …

Mathematics of beauty: How does nature shape river networks?

Did you ever wonder the river network evolve through years? Probably not. But you can still come to PSS and learn why! During the talk I will show how a beautiful fractal-like river networks we can see around us emerges from the most basic principles …

Concentrated Vorticity in the Euler equations

In this talk I will give an overview of what I spend my time looking at. I will begin with the Euler and Navier Stokes equations and bring you all the way to the specific case that I am interested in- incompressible, stationary, Euler with helical …
